#EmptyShelf20: October

I've been doing a lot of stuff for METUP-UK this month, slept a lot, and played with 'Colour By Numbers' so not read a great deal - these 4 short texts worth a read though: Youth Ministry Online: Using Social Media Platforms by Tim Gough My rating: 5 of 5 stars Another short text, worth a read.

#EmptyShelf20: September
