I should probably mention that I've started up a new blog, yes? One just for writing book reviews and talking about tea? Here's the newest post. If  you want to learn more about the world of tea beyond teabags, then here you go.
I check out the Yunnan Sourcing August 2015 box. It's got yet more oolongs! Will my conversion to oolong teas continue? Let's see!

Great article by The Economist about what it takes for modern authors to succeed. 
THE mystery is worth a book in itself. How could a hitherto unknown novel by Harper Lee, writer of “To Kill a Mockingbird”, remain hidden for 60 years, and why...

Looking for a great resource on how to write plain language?

Well, look no more. +Iva Cheung has recreated "Plain Language: Clear and Simple", a long-lost classic from the Canadian government, and you can download a PDF copy for free on the page below!

(Many thanks to +Adrienne Montgomerie for pointing this page out).

It's been a while, but I have a new book review up! If you've got this year's Hugo Voters Packet, I strongly suggest taking a look at Samatar's work.

I need help from some #Android pros: what call recording app works best on a Samsung Galaxy S4?

I need to record calls since I'm a freelance writer and I interview people on the phone,and need to pull quotes verbatim from the conversation.

I've downloaded 2 different apps called "Automatic Call Recorder" and can't get the playback to work on either. Thoughts?

I REALLY like this: a side-by-side comparison of legal jargon vs plain language when it comes to a website's Terms of Service page (thanks to +Editors/Réviseurs Canada for the tip!)
Read the Terms of Service for Codeship.

Do you have a lot of books, so many that your shelves are pretty much groaning from the weight? Well, Book Riot has you covered.

You look stressed. You should have some tea. And maybe read a book, like I did today.
This week I take a look at Sleeping Dragon Green from Simple Loose Leaf, and revisit a favourite fantasy novel.
