Glorious tidings indeed, Gatherers and Grand Geeks! Today we have an ode to all warriors present and past with Veterans Day and we celebrate their heroic sacrifices. In midst of all that it has substantially cooled down here, and thus I am enjoying sitting up by my personal heater and finding all my favorite indie books to read. So how about I have you mimic my example and find some good indie reading for you all to indulge in?!
