Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear.
Basically the coolest little tool to have as a writer.
This is awesome!!!
Hmm! I will try this later.
I can’t wait to run my writing through this and get yelled at by it. My stuff is pretty much the exact opposite of Hemingway’s style.
This is amazing, I love it!
So for spring break my family is taking a vacation to multiple cities, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any bookstores (or enjoyable activities to do in March) in the following cities:
West Branch—Iowa (we’re going to the Hoover library, any other suggestions?)
Bettendorf—Illinois I think?
So does anyone know of any bookstores or fun things to do in March in these cities?

Right after the Borders bookstores closed I saw a sign for something called “Doctors Without Borders” and I was pretty young at the time so I thought it was a support group for doctors who missed Borders.

Overall Rating: 7.8/10 (3.9/5 stars)

Summary: For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks. Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
Review: I finished this book in one day. I don’t know why, seeing as the characters were very simple, the plot wasn’t too exciting, and the writing wasn’t incredibly unique… But somehow, I couldn’t put this book down. (Or maybe, the gorgeous cover was what really pushed me to continue to read it. With me, you never really know. (But seriously look at that cover. It’s absolutely beautiful.)) I stumbled upon this book when I was walking through a bookstore. I heard positive messages about it from friends, so I decided to check it out. And, most of the time, I don’t regret it. At least, I didn’t this time around.
