The Friday Recliner ~ Weekend Reading

Hi friend.

Each Friday afternoon I publish a short simple post called The Friday Recliner that hooks you up with a good read or two .

All of those good reads are linked up right here for easy access. 

The articles and posts come from a variety of authors and publications and make for good weekend or “anytime you have a cuppa and a spare moment”  reading.

They find their way into the Friday Recliner because they provide a little something fresh and friendly and un rushed for your soul.

They are sorted newest to oldest and the list is updated each week. Just click on the title to read.

You can find out more about the Friday Recliner right here
