Book Goodies

The act of writing always creates something of value. When I'm reading, it is the various manifestations of that inherent and powerful value that I'm looking to capture and share with my fellow book lovers.  

 

 

From humble days as a bookseller in Colorado, I now live in NYC and work for one of the big publishing houses. I'm always reading a huge variety of books, but you're bound to find more reviews on titles that might not be on every bookstore's shelf quite yet! 

 

And I must also say that it is immensely important to support independent bookstores. Definitely consider shopping with your local bookshop if you don't already!  

If you're looking for one then check out the great store I used to work at:

Tilt

Tilt - Ellen Hopkins I don't know why I can't sympathize with any of these characters (except maybe Shane), but I can't. I wish I could find a way to enjoy or appreciate the """poetry""" style of narrative, but it just isn't happening. The easiest way to sum it up is that some books are made to cater to certain tastes, and this book just simply has nothing that coincides with my preferences. At least I tried.
