The Not-So-Hidden Danger of e-Readers & Other Mobile Devices: The Charger.

Thoughts, Reactions & a Few Giggles #TheMorningAfter

My morning has been consumed with happiness, relief, and that feeling you get when you find something after almost conceding that you might have lost it forever…but still holding onto that shred of hope.
