a mind boggling number from disaster movies, world wars, and holocaust

a quarter of a million died in 2022

politicians put bodies in the ground, then tried to subvert an election — a rashly attempted coup
that still simmers,
on the backburner, a looming second, slow burn coup

but who will remember?

Edgar Allan Poe
“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”
Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven

Fred Rogers
“It isn't only famous movie stars who want to be alone. Whenever I hear someone speak of privacy, I find myself thinking once again how real and deep the need for such times is for all human beings . . . at all ages.”
Fred Rogers

Carl Sagan
“At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes--an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense.”
Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Jessica Mae Stover :)

Hi there! And welcome! I rate critically instead of based on liking (the two don't always overlap): anything rated a 4 or 5 is a minor or major triumph and more objectively is a good use of anyone's time. That is to say, these books have something generally worthwhile to offer and a high quality of craft and manuscript production. I recommend all of these works. Enjoy!

Anything rated a 3 is solid enough and can be translated as, "Read this if you are into exactly this sort of thing." Enjoy!

My approach includes a sociological lens. Sociological imagination is part of the job of an author. There's a thread of this throughout my notes, along with some other themes. (Just in case that helps you decide whether or not to hit the follow button.) There are many reasons I might not rate a book at all, especially if I haven't figured out a just approach to rating the work since the rating system is very limited, or if I have nothing to add to a thoroughly-reviewed classic. Sometimes I post notes without rating as another way to provide nuance.

I curate shelves of recommendations for anyone looking for fresh ideas, and I often browse shelves curated by the readers in my feed. I aim to uplift great books and skilled writers, and provide insight into the publishing and film industry.

I'm an approved Bookshop author, and you can find my reading recommendations and challenges here. https://bookshop.org/shop/JSto Happy reading!
