September is a very special month for me because not only is it my Birthday Month (Shout out to my fellow Virgos!), it is also Reel Literature’s Blogiversary! In 2019, the Year of our Lord and Savior Blue Ivy, Reel Literature is celebrating 3 years of talking about books in these internet streets. Thank you to all the visitors who read and enjoy all of our posts, and many thanks to the visitors who leave a comment or three. We always appreciate all of that attention and love! Here is to many more years of book blogging fun!

In honor of this double celebration, we are taking another look behind the screen, and I am sharing more about ME! This post is the Get to Know Me Tag from fellow blogger and former Summer 2017 Comment Challenge Partner, Maddie from Polaroid Books.
