Stacking The Shelves


Over the years, I’ve managed to acquire quite a large “to be read” list.  Right now it is probably nearing 8 stories tall. It’s my tower of magnificent, beautiful, wonderful books.

Book Covers


I probably love book covers way too much. I could stare endlessly at them in libraries and admire them with longing in book shops. I know they say don’t judge a book by its cover but I think the other way is also appropriate. Don’t judge a cover by its books. For instance; Twilight. The writing is terrible and the…
