House of Cards by Kim Stagliano

I was already laughing out loud in the first chapter; the author had me at “Kat Sprenkle.” And when a police officer who Kat, the protagonist, finds attractive says, “I may need to contact you again,” Kat responds, “Full body contact works for me.”

Fabric is a collection of poems that for the most part are dark and intensely personal, and that speak at times to what I perceived to be an interminable and haunting pain. They rely heavily on metaphor and allegory, venturing deeply enough into the ...more

The Feedstore Chronicles by Travis Erwin
The Feedstore Chronicles
by Travis Erwin (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
The cover sums it up; this memoir is a glimpse into a world most (civilized) people never see. Told in Erwin's distinctive voice, with lots of dry humor, The Feedstore Chronicles would make a great foundation for a sitcom, or even a movie.

“An old book was a time capsule. When you opened the front cover, you opened a door to another world—a world accessible through a kind of looking glass made of hard-board and cloth. The author’s voice resonated in the reader’s head with the same words that had resonated in his own as he wrote them. He spoke to the reader from the past. What he had witnessed, experienced, learned, and discovered would live forever. You only had to turn a page to travel in time.”
