Posted August 4, 2016 by Erica / 4 Comments

I am so happy that Aentee @ Read at Midnight created this tag (and the graphics). Books & Pokemon, how could anyone pass this up? Ever since the app has been released my data and coffee intake has gone up, but my sleep and sanity has definitely gone down. But hey, that is what it takes to be the very best. Now I get to add this wonderful app with my one true love, books. So, let’s get to the fun part; combining the two. My started Pokemon was the lovely Bulbasaur.
