The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

2019-04-10T18:14:34+08:00Jul 07 2018|Books|

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society I couldn't put "5 reasons I loved..." in the title anymore because the book title itself is a mouthful! I can't remember whether the title put me off a bit when I first heard of it, or whether it drew me in. It's been [...]

5 takeaways from interviewing the head of the Philippine Navy Reposting something I wrote about 3 years ago because I stumbled upon it.
