I was quite surprised when I saw that the Great American Novel was covering romance novels but I loved the video. Overall, it’s pretty respectful of the genre and interesting to watch, so I’m sharing it with you today.

This is a short post because I just started a semester of college that has kept me busy but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

The Ultimate Indie Book Reading Challenge

I’ve talked to many people who want to read more indie books (books published independently of the Big Five publishing companies) this year, and that’s excellent.
