I am only as good as my sources - though I mainly stick to my books, I may in the future share an opinion on a social or cultural event or aspect relating to these books. In that case, I will do my best to use reliable sources and do research before forming and sharing an opinion. My opinion my change as new information comes to light - in that case, it was not my intention to be deceptive, I can only form an opinion on the information available to me at a certain point in time.

I am not perfect - not by a long shot. I will make mistakes, be it utilizing a faulty source, linking something, or forgetting to cite a source. When this happens, please send me an email at aurorathorntonbooks@gmail.com so I can quickly correct the issue, but I make no claims to getting everything right every time.
