Istanbul-based mongol seeking horde for mass pillaging.
If Amazon were to offer a paid service that was 1. fair to writers and 2. let me borrow new, popular titles without waiting in a hold queue with 120 other library patrons, I would be on it SO FAST.
But Amazon Unlimited's selection is pretty abysmal. There are gobs of public domain novels available, as well as a lot of bottom of the barrel books that nobody was jumping to pay a monthly fee to read.
If Amazon Unlimited were to truly work, I would like to read "An Untamed State" right now and I would like to read "The Magician's Land" on August 5 when it releases AND I would like the authors to be compensated fairly.
I'd be willing to pay $25 or more a month for that.
@THECLEANSER I agree with recent letters sounded very similar and yes it would be great to see more questions addressing the varied aspect of the human experience. I took no offense in your language since have definately felt broken and very depressed and sometimes revisit these but I am not there now and it's been over a decade sooo Once in a while it would be great to see a letter about a 40 something single mother trying to get laid by a non-tepid motherfuckers, just kidding.
Life is complicated. Troubles, triumphs and tedium. Catharsis and catastrophe. A couple of epiphanies. Three, if you're lucky.
There. Didn't take six volumes, after all.
Oh my god, this makes me realize how listicle-without-commentary-deprived I've been.
This website used to be cool.
Alt-texts were cool.
I think the real problem here is people are having children in New York. Can we address it from that angle?
A cop asking if you know what you're doing is illegal and then giving you information about a legal alternative isn't exactly a nightmarish police state.
I don't know how inclusive you mean to be about these here "leaves," and I do believe I see a leaf or two in yonder photos.
But, a minimal "leaf" salad for summertime is the caprese variant adding [fresh] watermelon or [in season] peaches as a layer between the [best you can get your hands on; preferably from your own garden] tomato, the mozz, and, of course, the basil leaf.
If you're banning fresh [grown in your own pot] basil because it's a leaf, by the way, you're destroying your summer.
