books, kind of a lot. But I don’t usually buy a bunch at once, for obvious
financial reasons. But I had a gift card, obtained via Christmas, and I was
keen to u...

In which the Great Blog War of 2013 ends, and not with a blog-bang.
The inestimable Mr. Beettam, having upon further reflection determined that the only winning move is not to play, or something of that nature, has advised all and sundry that Blog War is not for him.  Thus endeth the Grea...

In which I review and strongly recommend TT: Full Throttle, an excellent debut YA novel by my friend, Nicole Winters. 
I'm not terribly into sports -- it's great if people enjoy playing them, and hey, if you're a passionate sports fan, there are way worse things you could be excited about. But left to my own devices, I don't follow any organi...

May I ask you all to check out the book trailer for my friend Nicole's new YA novel about the world's most prestigious -- and challenging -- motorcycle race?

This is What I'm Doing: The January 2014 Edition
I kind of went heads-down over the last few months of 2013, more than I intended or expected to. Between family and work, the holidays, the extreme weather adventures (I know I'm not alone there -- for a while it seemed like the entire continent was snowed ...

A great article by my friend, YA novelist Nicole Winters, on book recommendations for reluctant readers!

The smart and funny Matt Feazell has an Indiegogo campaign to fund production of the next collected volume of his wonderful comic, The Amazing Cynicalman! Sure, he's over 300% of goal, but those perks are WAY too sweet to pass up. Join me in supporting him!
