"Silver Shoes and Rabbit Holes" is a mother-daughter blog project. Our focus is on books, but we like to post whatever we feel like sharing, too: movies, music, photos, toys, etc. We earn no money off our blog. The most we receive is the occasional free book, which I always acknowledge when I post about it.
Here's a little bit about us.
