publicshaming: “Almost everything you post on this blog is so terrible and depressing!” Yes, I know. It’s a message I often receive on here.

Without ruining the cover, of course. The video version of this, with the more difficult stickers, and if you don’t feel like reading. You will need three things if you’re a beginner and four things if you’re under whatever the suitable age for this sort of thing is.

I have this little pink hanger on the left…and below my Kobo somewhere. It’s a link for things I shop for or will probably shop for. It’s mostly a collection of nerdy book things/nerdy nerd things.
