The day is August 31, 2012, and my clock currently reads 1:19 AM. By the time you read this post I’ll already be a plane, halfway to Boston to begin my sophomore year in college. But that’s not why I’m writing this post, sure I could write about my family, and valuing every minute with others, and saying goodbye, yada yada yada but I’m trying to steer out of the pit of emotions that I often live in.
Instead this post is about my summer and all the things I’ve accomplished and you can accomplish in three months.

Awakening Our Society: A Review of the Kindle Single
“I’m Starved for You”
A new form of literature for the new generation
This month (March 2012), bestselling author Margaret Atwood released her first Kindle Single titled “I’m Starved for You” through with the digital publishing company Byliner. E-singles, which are digital novellas, have grown in popularity since the launch of Amazon’s Kindle Singles in January 2011. Although less than 30,000 words, “I’m Starved for You,” efficiently tells a gripping story about a married man struggling with his obsessive desire for another man’s wife. From the start, the e-single raises compelling questions such as “what kind of world is our society becoming?” and “how will we try and fix the problems we have created?”
