What’s up with “addictive” and “addicting”?
The dictionary has this to say about the two words:
However, so many people now use addicting in place of addictive that the two words have become virtually interchangeable.
To summarize, if you’re describing something that is habit-forming, addictive is the preferred word. No one will correct you if you use it in the proper context.
If you use addicting, you might face criticism from people who know the difference.
TIP: Just use addictive and save yourself the trouble.

Adorable little shit goes to Magic University and is a little shit to nobles and the masters and jumps off a roof at one point. It’s v good you should read.”
Yes I own two copies of each book and the audio books and they’re all very good and you should read them. And since they’re both pretty long you will have a lot to do
Most excellent. I will get my hands on them as soon as possible. Thanks, Ryan!
thekindofhopetheyalltalkabout asked: You should read Trickster's Choice and Trickster's Queen by Tamora Pierce. I can't remember which comes first....
I’ve heard of those, and I’m actually pretty sure they’re at the library in Rigby. I’ll go nab them tomorrow after work.
(Even as crappy a library as it is, if I can have a free card for living within city limits, I may as well have one.)

I was extremely interested as soon as you said “adorable little shit”. I’ll hunt for it in the bookstore tomorrow. Or, since Bryan just got Amazon Student, I’ll abuse the hell out of free two-day shipping.
