The Freedom to Read Whatever We Want to Read
As we take time to celebrate the freedoms we continue to enjoy in this country, let's remember that it all started with the founding fathers, of course.  But what better day to contemplate the freedoms that are being slowly eroded right before our eyes as a...

Boy's Life
Robert McCammon’s 1991 novel, Boy’s Life , is a very good coming-of-age novel in which young Cory
Mackenson learns more about life in just a few months than many adults ever
learn in a lifetime.   Because the novel
is set in small-town Alabama in 1964, Cory...

New Fonts for E-books...Can Page Numbering Be Far Behind?
For the last four or five years, I have consistently read more e-books than in the year before.  Too, I have migrated all the way from one of the original Sony Readers, to an upgraded Sony Reader, to a Kindle Paperwhite, and even to a Kindle Fire in the las...

Who Are These People?
A Process Opposite to That of Reading "Fifty Shades of Grey" When I see a headline like "Fifty Shades of Grey sequel breaks sales records," my first thought is always "who are you people?"  And even after a bit of consideration, I can only attribute the pop...

A Library Undoes a Wrong - 73 Years Later
Olivia Raney Local History Library, Raleigh, NC Even though it should never have happened, and even though it took 73 years to finally make it right, a library in North Carolina has reached out to a would-be patron it treated badly way back in 1942.   Pearl...

The Harder They Come
T.C. Boyle’s The
Harder They Come is a disturbing reminder that the United States is not

The Weird Mind of Dan Simmons on Display
I made a quick stop at my county library branch this morning to drop off three books that were due back and stumbled upon a couple of interesting new novels while there.  The branch keeps only the children's books and a few of the more recently published fi...

I need it more than I can tell you, Ted.  Going to the doctor again in the morning to see if my ears can take it.  Did kind of a test run in a loud environment this afternoon and it kind of backfired.  Ears are worse than before the event even though I only stayed for about ten minutes.

Texas Vigilante
Texas Vigilante is
Bill Crider’s sequel to his rousing western novel Outrage at Blanco .   What
