Daily Grind :: Books, Coffee, Music & Locked Doors

Good to have you back, my Pretties. In today's grind the convo circles around literature, screen addiction, beverages of choice and then right back around to bookcases. We finish things off with our first featured song in over a week. Sorry 'bout that.
