No, that’s not a typo or a phonetic respelling of how I pronounce nanowrimo. I’m mixing it up and doing something a bit different this year. Instead of writing a 50k word novel during the month of November, I’m celebrating National Novel Reading Month.

My Kindle has died. Well and truly died. I’ve tried every trick the internet suggested.

so i quit WoW almost 2 months ago, but hadn’t gotten around to killing my account. every time i thought about, it wasn’t near my computer. tonight, i logged into their website to cancel it. coolest part: i’d forgotten my password. second to least coolest part: they give you a dropdown menu of reasons for [...]
