WILD RELEASE NOTES:
on the reading table
Enjoyed reading several myths of Norse Mythology while waiting to get my hair cut. Never been so happy to be 4th in line!
Same guy from the hairdresser. Decided to take it with me so I can finish it. Great initiative, would not have read it otherwise. Will update once I am done and drop it at it's next destination.
