My fave reads, 2020

I don’t know where to start with talking about reading in the year 2020. I had a brilliant start. I was absolutely ripping through books. And then. The world ground to a halt, and so did my brain. I think some people found that the pandemic made for good reading,...

Authors We Love: Jasper Fforde

Whenever anyone asks me to describe Jasper Fforde's books, the first word I choose is 'quirky'. After all, Thursday Next's pet is a cloned Dodo named Pickwick, and her father and son time travel. And that's only scratching the surface of the quirkiness. I think this...

Highlights of my TBR: Ang, 8/27/20

TBR: To-Be-Read; references a list that many readers keep Well my goodness, this number is just embarrassing. As of today, there are 1333 items on my TBR. In my defense, books come out way faster than I can read them, even though I try like hell to read as many as I...

Highlights of my TBR: Ang, 7/16/19

TBR: To-Be-Read; references a list that many readers keep I almost don't want to tell you my TBR number, because I'm a little embarrassed by it. Pals, there are 999 titles on my extended TBR. That's pretty much 1,000 books, which would take me 10-ish years to get...

Highlights of my TBR: Ang, 3/27/19

TBR: To-Be-Read; references a list that many readers keep Including books that aren't out yet, my TBR list is 912 books long. If you're thinking that seems absurd, well, I guess it is. Lo those many years ago, I used to keep it on sheets of notebook paper, and as I...

Readers’ Advisor Profile: Ang

I love reading. I'm the type of voracious reader that'll read shampoo bottles and cereal boxes, if there's nothing else around. Before e-readers, I had a book or two with me every second of every day. I used to carry a large tote bag to work (in a library) filled with...

Genre Explorer: Space Opera

Aliens, spaceships, and interspecies conflict: a recipe for over-the-top drama. In space. The term space opera was originally meant to be derogatory, like the terms horse opera (for formulaic Westerns) and soap opera (which is obviously still in common usage). It was...

Favorite Reads, 2019

I'm having a hard time figuring out what to say about my year in reading. It feels like I've been reading a LOT (171 books as of December 3rd), but I don't think I'll hit last year's 188 book total. And yet, if you asked me, I think I'd say that I've spent more time...
