Recommendations: Wintery Atmosphere

Hey all, Dani here. Well, we've finally made it to Friday. This has felt like a v-e-r-y-l-o-n-g-w-e-e-k, at least to me.

Goals for 2020

Hey all, Dani here. Since we are now in the early days of the year, I suppose it is time to make some resolutions.

Review: The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith

Hey all, Dani here. The premise of today's book sounded so utterly interesting to me that I had to put it on my highly anticipated list. And then, pretty much as soon as I got my copy, I was ready to sit down and start reading. Thankfully, I can say that my anticipation was not… Continue reading Review: The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith
