Book Babbler Conundrums

Dear fellow Babblers,

If you have unfortunately stumbled upon, become strangely intrigued by, and miraculously have thereafter clicked *Follow* on Delphine’s Babble on Some Good Reads (also know as …*where you are now*) then you will have caught on by now that I truly live up to my virtual existence as a Babbler; book Babbler if you decide to grant me such an honor.
