"Death changes everything, but unlike what you may have seen or read, it doesn't offer profundities or epiphanies on its own. There's no time for that. It's only later, after the fact, while you're doing something normal -- cleaning the litter box or buying stamps -- that its power arrives. Because it is only life still going on in the present that makes what you've lost become part of the past... Read more of this blog post »

I have a fascination with apocalyptic end-of-the-world stories. I've loved them ever since I first read Stephen King's The Stand. I also had high expectations for this novel given all its advance praise and accolades. It was great in many ways but no ...more

I met Hank Smith as he was traveling through our town and playing a house concert. He is a musician of considerable talent. While Leaving Auburndale was an interesting read, it's still a little rough around the edges.

A powerful and thoughtful read. Atwood presents a realistic not-so-distant future in which the economy of the world has bottomed out. Unemployment is at an all-time high. Entire communities have collapsed. Only the ultra-rich are living comfortably a ...more

Somehow, I rated this book back in 2012 even though I never read it. Yes, I'm in my 5th decade and I had never read To Kill a Mockingbird cover to cover until now. I'm not sure how this happened and I'm almost ashamed. How can I call myself a true bi ...more

This was certainly one of the most creative memoirs I've ever read. As a superfan of the choose-your-own-adventure format when I was a child, I thought this was a fabulous way for NPH to tell his story. I loved that some of the "endings" were actuall ...more

This might be my favorite short story collection by King to date. My favorite part of the book was the introductions before each story where he shared some insights as to the inspiration or process involved in its creation. I love to see how his brai ...more

“I'll tell them how I survive it. I'll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in things because I'm afraid it could be taken away. That's when I make a list in my head of every act of goodness I've seen someone do. It's like a game. Repetitive. Even a little tedious after more than twenty years.

But there are much worse games to play.”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay
