Thank you for the reading list. It’s much appreciated. My only comment or critique is this hipster bashing portion of your essay. It disassociates you from your readers, people whom I presume have some interest in reading or enlightenment, and takes away the focus from your gratitude inducing stance. I suggest you remove it. The sarcastic/ sardonic approach runs thin very quick. Just my opinion. Your piece would be much less self-involved and more embracing. Nonetheless, it was written very well.
