What's everyone reading right now?
Kristan: What am I NOT reading right now? Hah! After years of monogamy, I've somehow found myself constantly three-timing. That is, reading a print book, reading an ebook, and reading an audiobook at the same time. Right now: Print: MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES by Jasmine Warga (because she's ...
