Goal Setting or Wishful Thinking? My Goals for 2019

I'm normally not one for goals. Frankly, I'm not one for the whole "new year" concept either (except Chinese New Year, because then I get to eat lots of food). But symbolically I realize how it could help people (still don't really see why it's a holiday, but I'll take what I can get) set … Continue reading Goal Setting or Wishful Thinking?

An Open Letter to Anyone Who Reads Reviews

Honestly, today's discussion is pretty straightforward and can be boiled down into one phrase (at the end, of course), but I still feel the need to emphasize certain points for any person who reads reviews. There's a whole entire community (aka the book community) dedicated to books and also reviewing books and reading reviews. And this … Continue reading An Open Letter to Anyone Who Reads Reviews
