    10 Favorite Websites To Read on The Internet Right Now

    Who here is an avid reader? I love reading. It is one of the few things I truly enjoy doing the most during my downtime. Reading keeps my brain active. It’s where I get new ideas, learn about the world and experience someone else’s perspective. It’s also a great way to brush up on grammar and learn new styles of writing. Unfortunately, time has become an increasingly finite resource. When I was a teenager, I would devour 1000-page epic novels in less than a week. Now, I struggle to finish a 300-page novel in a month.

    Okay, sooo I’m just gonna cut right to it. As one reader pointed out, I’ve taken down Part 1 of “What is Share Margin Financing”. Yes, that’s because I wasn’t very happy with the quality of the work. Over the past week, as I sat down to write Part 2, I kept seeing some gaps and problems in my initial outline. I soon realized that the subject matter is much too complex and I won’t do it justice by approaching it the way I did. I’ve decided to revisit the outline, rework it and try to change my approach.   There are instances in the past year where I’ve published…
