I think this is a great question, DO we need town criers in our epic fantasies? Because I say this not in the sense of should we get rid of them, but should be ADD them? When was the last time you read a story that featured a town crier? SEE. I can’t remember for the life of me one example and I think it’s a missed opportunity.
Oh my gosh! Goodreads! Mad! They removed the function that shows you your most read authors. My friends, this is a true tragedy. I simply cannot function without an abundance of statistics. Actually, I think I’ve come to the conclusion that half the reason I enjoy reading is FOR the statistics. What can I say?

June put me to the test and I cracked. BUT OH BOY. Are you seeing this?!? Are you SEEING all the new shinies coming out this month?!?! Continue reading
