Goodwin Reads Bookish Weekly 22/20
A Flicker in the Dark, People We Meet on Vacation, A Broom of One's Own, and more!
Hey there, Book Buddy!
I had such a great reading week. We have two buddy reads going on this week. We’re reading A Flicker in the Dark and People We Meet on Vacation. They’re both fantastic books. I don’t want to put either of them down.
I’m also reading a nonfiction writing craft book, A Broom of One’s Own, by Nancy Peacock. It’s about her life as a two-time published housekeeper. She details her experiences with various clients. I wouldn’t usually think it would be good, just hearing what it’s about, but it’s pretty good. Each story is entertaining.
I hope you are doing well and having great reading week as well. Here is what we are going to cover in this issue:

Paid supporters will receive a multiplier of two. So if a paid supporter has five activity stars, they will get ten entries into the giveaway.
I don’t have a way of displaying everyone’s star rating while maintaining everyone’s privacy. If you would like to know your star rating, please ask individually.
I’ll use a giveaway generator website to determine the winner. I’ll record the drawing and upload the video at the beginning of June.
