Last week I read One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey. Now it may come as a surprise that I had never read this book before. But if that shocked you then you are really going to be blown away by the fact I’ve never seen the movie either. (Patiently waits for heads […]

Last week I actually read two books. So, I’m pretty sure that means I’m brilliant and also confirms I’m literate for those who were in doubt (you know who you are). I couldn’t decide which one to review and I felt like reviewing them both would just be shoving it in your faces how brilliant […]

I started out last week reading another book about Anne Boleyn. I got about half-way through it and realized there was not one thing I read that I didn’t already know.

So sue me. I re-read Slaughterhouse Five last week. I re-read it every year. So it goes. I’m not going to get into my deep and undying love for this book. You already know all about that. What I would like to share is how this book came into my life. I was working at […]

I really enjoyed the exploration of paranoia and crime in Soviet-era Russia. And I thought […]

I’ve heard many stories about the French Resistance but this was the first really comprehensive view of women’s role in it. And let me […]

For several years, I have boasted about having read everything ever published by Kurt Vonnegut. Last week, I found another collection of short stories that was published posthumously that I had never read. Touche Mr. Vonnegut, you have taught me an important lesson on braggadocio. Well played. So- my choice for last week was that […]

In an effort to be better at dating, I read a book called Jane Austen’s Guide to Dating. I have a lot of respect for Jane Austen so my initial thought was, “Hey, who better to give me dating advice?” But as I read through all the book, I began to have grave doubts. I […]

No one can say I don’t stick to my New Year’s resolutions…….. Last week I read The Man Who Loved Books Too Much by Allison Hoover Bartlett. I’m going to be straight-up with you guys- when I first picked up this book at my local B&N, I totally thought it was fiction. I took one […]
