Musing 100 - Recap of Musings

· 100th Musing,Recap,Blog posts,Fine Book Collecting,Bookselling

This is my 100th musing! A milestone. I posted my first musing on August 3, 2019. Actually, I don’t post anything. My faithful webmaster, Renée Gruszecki, handles that for me. She designed our website and looks after everything about it. I write up the musings Friday night, Glenda edits them, thank goodness, and early Saturday morning, Renée prepares and uploads the musing onto the website. And she finds the appropriate musing banner illustration. Thank you, Glenda, and Renée for your help for 100 musings and counting!

I usually start to think about musing topics mid-week. Sometimes, I think that maybe I have covered a potential topic in a previous musing. And I often refer to previous musings. I could do with a listing! So, for this “anniversary musing”, I have decided to recap the 100 musings, by category. I am not going to bother with dates or numbers, that would be too much clutter.
