I agree! Don’t Do It, Harper Lee

I have been watching the last couple of days the reaction to the news that Harper Lee has a new book coming out. I’m actually pretty stunned at what I’m seeing. How can a book be number 1 on Amazon and it hasn’t even been read? How can people think the book is going to […]

Revival of THE REVENANT, a Great Adventure Novel

I don’t typically like the “great out west” stories, but, this one might be worth picking up. I particularly liked the article below, as it is written by the editor of the book back in 2003.

Alexandra Sokoloff: Huntress Moon and Blood Moon

I have had the pleasure of reading copies of Alexandra Sokoloff’s Huntress FBI series (books 1 and 2) this past week. I didn’t expect to be sucked into the story; but by the second third of the Huntress Moon, I couldn’t put it down. There were a few word choices I wouldn’t have made, because […]

Karen Armstrong was a nun. She was in the convent as a novice for seven years or so. And then, she left. No, that makes it sound like it was an easy decision. It wasn’t. It was no easier than leaving any other institutional occupation that you’ve believed in and invested your whole life into, […]

American Psycho Rereading

Articles like this make me happy. These types of articles make me happy because they give a review of a book, as well as the impact of said book (and often then movie) on society. It almost feels like there is an anthropological aspect to this article by Irvine Welsh at the Guardian. Read more: […]

The Definition of a Dictionary

I wasn’t sure about this article when I first saw it, but I got sucked in and the history of the Merriam-Webster dictionary is fascinating. The question really is will the company update a new print copy or will the next update be a digital online tome that can be accessed in a web browser. […]

Thoughts About CanLit

I thought this was an article worth sharing. I really enjoy Canadian Lit. However, I rarely think about it when I’m looking for a new book to read. For some reason, I never remember how much I enjoy it to go looking for it. Hopefully, this list will keep CanLit at the forefront next time […]

Elitist, Superfluous, Or Popular? We Polled Americans on the Oxford Comma

I love this article. I hate commas and sometimes, just like many, many other people, am never really sure where they go at all times. Read more: Elitist, Superfluous, Or Popular? We Polled Americans on the Oxford Comma There’s been a lot of ink spilled on the Oxford comma, the comma that goes before “and” […]

Philip Pullman Has Written a New His Dark Materials Short Story

I think about the His New Dark Materials books a lot – they are one of my favorite stories, and yet I never ever recommend them, really. For some reason, I think reading them was a personal thing for me, and maybe I don’t want to share that with anyone. If I recommend them and […]
