Conversations is a fortnightly discussion meme, where the aim is to get to know other bloggers and to generate conversations, as the name of the meme suggests!
How do I participate?It's very easy! Below are a list of topics that we will be hosting for the year 2016 - just see which one is coming up, write up a post for it, publish it, then link up to it on either Joan @ Fiddler Blue's blog, or right here at Corralling Books! :D Then, talk about the topic to other bloggers, comment and just have real conversations!
