    Book review: The Comedy of Errors

    The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare The Comedy of Errors is a Shakespearean classic and here are my thoughts of it. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a book review as it is a play of a certain age. But as a part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, and me being a thespian, I just had to read it!

Two of them end up in one place, the other two somewhere else and herein lies the premise of our plot. The pairs of twins then…

    Bookreview: “The Lifechanging Magic of not giving a F**k”

    Feedback & Test Readers – Who’s who? (Part 1)

    Who are your test readers?
