I read because I must. It's like breathing to me. And I love talking about books. But I'm also an Arsenal fan, a wine drinker, a music lover and weirdly obsessed with pop culture. I mostly blog about books, but sometimes about things I'm thinking or doing. When I'm not on the blog, I'm scoping deals for a professional services company, hanging out with friends, or seeing some live theater.

Intense colors, intriguing pictures. So I picked up first Wicked Lovely and then Ink Exchange. Like the Twilight series, these are geared towards young adults, but I […]

Al Gore’s The Assault on Reason http://books.barnesandnoble.com/search/results.aspx?WRD=the+assault+on+reason+how+the+politics+of+blind&box=The%20Assau&pos=1 I’m not sure what Al Gore wanted to provoke in people reading this book. I’ll summarize my reaction in one word: Angry. This book made me angry. Angry at the Bush Administration, all over again. At our Congress. At a handful of our judges. At those appointed by […]

Primarily, I wanted something that I could just enjoy to finish off vacation, […]
