It’s that time of year again. Half of your facebook is
idealistic 20-year-olds proclaiming that this is the year they’ll lose those
twenty pounds, and the other half are naysayers proclaiming resolutions are
pointless since no one lives up to them anyway. A...

Lost Books
Many readers have strong feelings about their books as physical

(specifically, one presentation, four one-page papers, two 4-6 page papers, a
take home test, and another one-page paper assigned in the middle of the week)
and on your...

The Library Book Haul to End All Book Hauls
I have over thirty books out from the library right now. I’m
not reading them all—no way, no how. I knew this as I threw these books into my
