The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett
Rate this book
Clear rating
We all know about thieves who steal rare books so they can resell them for money. But what about the ones who steal them just because they want them? That's what we have here, a rare look into the mind of a hoarder who can't afford - or feels like he ...more

100 Years by Joshua Prager
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book is very pretty. It's a collection of quotes from authors (novelists and otherwise) about every year of life from zero to one hundred. Some are stretching it a bit, and not all of them are actually about being said age, but it's an interesti ...more

The Bloodthirsty Weasels by Theresa Bane
Rate this book
Clear rating
The bloodthirsty weasels are all the terrible people in the world. Sometimes these comics are funny, but most of them are pretty blah. The art is terrible but manages to get its point across, so that's something. Worth browsing through for ten minute ...more

Rate this book
Clear rating

Tides by Jonathan    White
Rate this book
Clear rating
I've never lived near water so I never gave much thought to tides. I figured it was just the water level rising and falling with the moon. Turns out there's a whole lot more to them than I'd known. Parts of this book are admittedly dry, but the varie ...more

F in Exams by Richard Benson
Rate this book
Clear rating
I'd seen most of these on the internet before, but it was still fun to read these hilariously wrong answers to test questions. My only complaint was that some of the handwriting fonts weren't too legible. But that's a minor quibble - none of them wer ...more

Ghost World by Daniel Clowes
Rate this book
Clear rating
Well. That happened. That's about all I can say. Two teenage girls do a lot of talking without much substance. It's supposed to be funny but I missed the jokes. I don't actually fault the author for this - I think I'm just not the target audience, de ...more
