For example, our version of the neighborhood discussion group, Nextdoor, had a post from a member flatly stating that pollen from plants bought ...

Three Phases of Decluttering and Why They All Are Important for an Organized Home

Does all the clutter around you and the idea of decluttering it all overwhelm you? I totally get it. I get overwhelmed with too much stuff as well.

A venerable if maverick Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn was a student of the living Force. Qui-Gon lived for the moment, espousing a philosophy of "feel, don't think -- use your instincts." On Tatooine, Qui-Gon discovered a young slave boy named Anakin Skywalker who was strong in the Force. Sensing the boy's potential, Qui-Gon liberated Anakin from slavery.

EPUB Updates

From what I understand, Kobo does not update EPUBs you buy with typo fixes and such unlike Amazon. What EPUB file that Kobo has on hand the day you purchase the eBook is what you'll always get. Is that still the case? Just wondering if I'd still be better off waiting a couple of years after an eBook is initially published before buying to give it time for any minor corrections needed.
