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.

Book 7: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. Released in the States as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone I’m not including a link here- if you can’t find or haven’t heard of Harry Potter, well, there’s really no hope now, is there? I remember when I first entered the world of Harry Potter. […]

Bonus Book: The Magicians by Lev Grossman

I can’t really count this book in the 52 in 52 tally because I started it before I began my little adventure. But, I just now finished it, and I enjoyed it. Thought I would write about it anyway. The Magicians by Lev Grossman: http://www.amazon.com/Magicians-Novel-Lev-Grossman/dp/0670020559/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1263768099&sr=1-1 What if Narnia and Hogwarts were real?

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 […]
