This is a lifestyle blog. For this reason among others, this blog is not a forum for sensitive, serious topics. I may read and list books on these topics, I’m sharing what I choose to read, not opening up a forum for debate. I ask you to respect this. For all other topics, I expect the conversation to be polite and civil (not Mrs. Bennet’s version of civil). Please format any criticism or argument to be constructive and intellectual, not inciteful, petty, and spiteful (please see this post). Thank you.
