  1. I love the Kingdom Pen push. I’m on there all the time and love it. 🙂

    You all seem to like to listen to lighter stuff and then read the toughest books around. . .

    • Yes, we’ve found Kingdom Pen to be a great resource for young writers!

      Haha perhaps! I have always loved this quote by Sir Francis Bacon: “Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.” I think those heavy books are best chewed and digested when you get to sit and read all those profound works in ink on paper. 🙂
