Every week I’ll post a reading/writing/fantasy related quote on the side of this blog. Look to the right side of your screen. –>

After the week is up, I’ll replace the quote, and the old one will come live here, where you can see them all at once. If you have any quotes you’d like to see, leave a comment below! 🙂
