  1. Hate I missed the chat today but these cover the suggestions I had! I LOVE Evernote. So glad Tif got me into that. I jot down notes about books while I am reading in it then I can copy and paste onto my blog and just tweak it as necessary. Saves so much time! (Not that I am really stellar at posting reviews! lol)

    I also second the break thing. I’ve done it and I’m here to tell you that people welcome you back!
