Print sales, however, experienced a 9% increase in profits from last year, suggesting that paper may be best after all.

Everyone always tries to find something else to do instead of writing their dissertations. It’s a fact we all need to accept, is that when your coursemate brags they’ve started it or done a massive amount of progress on it, the truth is they’re probably 3 seasons deep into a Netflix Original and they need to hide it. Over the summer though, I was not 3 seasons deep into a Netflix Original, but rather watching someone else get 90 hours deep into The Witcher 3. Continue reading The Last Wish – Andrzej Sapkowski

And that is the start of A Court of Mist and Fury.
