Three years ago I retired from my job as a librarian after 40 years and I started this blog. It has been a rewarding journey.
But Rosy the Reviewer needs to take a vacation from time to time, so while I am away, I thought I would leave you with some of my most popular posts over the last three years. Some of you may have been with me since the beginning and have already seen these, but some of you may be new readers who might enjoy some of these posts that you didn't know about.
Let me know which ones you liked the most and I will see you next week with some new content.
The all-time most popular and most read post is this early one posted August 13, 2013. It has had thousands of page views.
