I've read a lot of discussion posts lately that address the great DNF debate: … Continue reading Annie DNF’ed a Book

In real life, my tendencies … Continue reading Annie’s Take on Outlining (and Why She Doesn’t Like It)

Annie’s Friends Give Book Recommendations

They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but this girl's best friends are books.  Over the years, I've come across other girls just like me, ones who will forget their keys or their wallet but never fail to have a book in their purse (probably because "must be big enough to hold a book" … Continue reading Annie’s Friends Give Book Recommendations
