Facebook Page: At the BookShelf


I have been working on a Facebook Page for At the BookShelf. This is now live and has been for a little while. I am looking at ways to broaden the horizon for At the BookShelf and a Facebook page is a good start. I still need to add a cover picture and profile picture – if anyone has a suggestion please feel free to let me know via the page.

Please follow on the Facebook page (by liking the page) via the link at the right of the Blog. Thanks all 🙂
