So many volume 1's of various manga are free right now. 👀
I'm looking at a preview of a book and saw this word:✨ caravansary ✨

Also: I just found out how to share my Amazon lists. lol Here's my "TBR" list of books I grabbed on 100% off discounts that looked interesting to me (except The Shadow Casket - I don't own that book yet but I do plan to read it in the future).

Help me pick my next read, maybe. I'm gonna make the choice myself but which look interesting to you? 😅

Hi. o7 If there are any audiobook listeners here (I unfortunately am not one):
I wanted to help a friend who's a university student doing a thesis relating to audiobooks. They desperately need more responses on their survey and need it by the 25th. 💧 Thank you kindly!
EternalRain I filled it out! Best of luck to them!

Just finished 'Lorden Awakening' by Krislee Ellsworth~ 📖 (https://t.co/og3K66OJ5S) This is the third e-book that I grabbed for free that I read, and I think I'm placing it 2nd, with 'Decimus Fate and the Talisman of Dreams' at 1st and 'Child of Destiny' at 3rd.
This was almost the first of these e-books that I did not find a typo in but alas. 😅 I found a few.
- wall of text ahead -Spoiler! :I had issues with it (character reactions and relationships/friendships developing too fast, conflict resolutions that were too fast/easy, etc.) but it was an 'okay' read. The prose and the plot were okay. And I can't really complain much 'cause I got the e-book for free.
I'm very likely not continue with the rest of the series. I maybe should have read a standalone instead. The next thing I read should be a higher quality read, or maybe I should just read faster so that less quality reads won't take long to get through. But the chances of me reading faster are very low. lol I've improved, though, since I first returned to reading books in 2021; I took months to finish 'Warbreaker', 'The Eye of the World', and 'The Ember Blade', and now I just take a month or two to finish one book, but then again the previous books were heavier reads...
Now I need to pick my next read among the books in my 'TBR' list 🤔, which I feel like is gonna take an hour or so. lol Or maaaaaybe I'll make the jump and actually spend some money on one of my non-free/discounted TBRs. 🙃 In hindsight, I feel like I should be spending my time on more critically acclaimed books so that I can learn more as a writer, especially 'cause time sadly is finite.
Speaking of which, I've been at a loss about when I should get back to writing. I've been either too busy or preoccupied with several other things (to say the least) that I'm having trouble finding time for writing. And when I do open up my draft, I worry if I'm already well-read enough to write. 😵💫
I really need my next read to have strong prose 🤔, and then during or after that, I'll feel comfortable enough to return to writing. We'll see.

Word of the Night last night. :3
I'm not sure I understand it completely yet but I'll remember it as a fancy way to say 'extend' or 'swell'.

My current wallpaper
(*It's two images I combined; one is 'Buckland' by Ralph Damiani and the other is a One Ring Inscription wallpaper I don't know the original source of 💧, plus some brightness and contrast adjustments.) :
Caerulean https://artstation.com/ralphdamiani <- He's practically my favorite artist at this point because he's got BEAUTIFUL LOTR art (and art in general) and he plays LOTRO and some of his LOTR art are based off of LOTRO sceneries.

All right, all right, all right... SO
I was looking at Master @Nate 's About page, tried to visit his website by clicking the link but sadly it's not active anymore, saw an old interview post where Wattpad and Figment were mentioned, and so I was curious about the latter 'cause I believe I'd never heard of it before, and THEN
I found out that there's a game called 'Figment' also which is currently free (100% off) on Steam right now! LOL 😆 Talk about ✨ serendipity ✨.
(*Also Black Desert Online (base game) is 100% off but I knew about that already.)
Nate Wow, I completely forgot about Figment. That was a website that launched with a lot of fanfare, including a big story on the front page of one of the sections of the New York Times. It never really went anywhere. Wattpad is still around though, and still going pretty strong.
