The question of whether it was … Continue reading why didn’t chaucer finish the canterbury tales? and other unfinished masterpieces

You all know how much I love tea. If I could write poetry, I would write odes and sonnets to its deliciousness. I have a pretty good collection of mugs to drink my tea from, if I say so myself. And even when I do dabble in a coffee or two, I always go back … Continue reading adagio tea – feat. exclusive giveaway!

Pros: It's cheaper - this is probably the main reason that I use an e-reader. Digital books tend to be cheaper than printed … Continue reading should i read e-books?

But that's not what I'm … Continue reading why I don’t use Goodreads’ star ratings
