Pocket Watch – 1910 Why Isn’t Just Reading Enough Anymore? – This post reminds me of why I quit Goodreads and why I don’t miss it at all. Between the event invites, the recommendations and authors sending me friend invites, I felt like I was under siege. Even now I… Read more »

When I went to RT, the registration packet included a USB stick containing something like 600+ ebooks. So of course when I got home I went on NetGalley to look for books to request. (I might have a problem. /shrug) I’d read and enjoyed Evans before and the blurb for… Read more »
