Essentially a Nerd

It’s World Book Day! (I had to verify that this was actually a thing, because it totally sounds like something somebody like me would have made up as an excuse for a good booklist, but it’s legit and has been a thing since 1995, or 1996.) The date honors some of our greatest writers’ lives, […]
