But Sanderson is truly gifted. He has created an amazing magic system, and he is skilled in descriptions […]

Why Don’t I Post on Wednesdays?

I looked at my calendar recently. You know, the one to the right of my screen? In looking, I noticed an odd phenomenon. I have never made a post on a Wednesday. I have nothing against Wednesdays. In fact, I quite like them, as they are a day off of work for me. But because […]

So, as I near the end of my being stuck with library books that I hated, when I have many bookcases of possibilities open to me… why is it now that I want to re-read books? And not even books that it has been a long time since I read them last. I am talking […]
