"Oh, I forgot to complain about this thing: dude writes super flowery prose like "the plenitude of the refulgent day" but when describing a diner waitress, can only come up with saying she's "15 or 20 pounds overweight." Over *what* weight? What the fuck is 15 pounds one way or another? Who are you (or we) to say what the "appropriate" weight of a fictional character is? What an asshole. Try harder, dude."

""The Other Man" - 2/5. Too long and all the fake science was complex and over-explained without being actually entertaining." Apr 27, 2016 10:25AM

The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
"I thought the beginning was hilarious, but then as the care of Gregor and the mundane details of his locked-in house life were revealed, this story seemed liked the isolation that a person who suddenly became severely disabled may feel, so I began..." Read more of this review »

This was really fantastic, just like everyone said it was. Creepy and angry and sexy. I even liked the novella based on Law and Order: SVU, even though I thought I woudn't; I don't like that show, at all, I don't even really like that it exists and p ...more

Modern Tarot by Michelle Tea
"It's refreshing to read a tarot guidebook that takes the 21st century into account. Michelle Tea does just that with a queer perspective on the cards and how to interpret them. If you're looking for more inclusive and modern ways to think about ta..." Read more of this review »
Doctor Who by Alan Barnes
"Well this turned out to be a pleasant nostalgia trip.

This collection covers the Doctor Who Magazine strips in 1996 and 1997, just after the TV movie came out and Paul McGann was the Eighth Doctor. This was prime time in my DWM collecting and readi..." Read more of this review »

This was great. I really enjoyed it (and I HIGHLY recommend listening to the audiobook version, as I do with all humorous celebrity memoirs. Not only do you get Busy's amazing impression of her midwestern mom, but you can hear her tearing up every so ...more

The Scarlet Pimpernel by Emmuska Orczy

J.K. Rowling
“It's going to be all right, sir," Harry said over and over again, more worried by Dumbledore's silence than he had been by his weakened voice. "We're nearly there ... I can Apparate us both back ... don't worry ..."
"I am not worried, Harry," said Dumbledore, his voice a little stronger despite the freezing water. "I am with you.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Neal Stephenson
“The difference between stupid and intelligent people – and this is true whether or not they are well-educated – is that intelligent people can handle subtlety. ”
Neal Stephenson, The Diamond Age: Or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer

Alan Bennett
“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
Alan Bennett, The History Boys

Abraham Lincoln
“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
Abraham Lincoln

Kurt Vonnegut
“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Mother Night
