Back to Kindle Unlimited

February 15, 2015

Well, after bowing out of Kindle Unlimited once my free trial expired, I find that I’ve signed up again. This time, I have no special offers, so I’ll be paying for at least one month of membership. The reason I’m back? I’m just so damn tired of listening to utterly crappy Librivox recordings! Look, I […]


Best and Worst Books of 2012

January 1, 2013

The title of the post is a bit misleading. This list is a compilation of the best and worst books that I read in 2012, not of books that were published in 2011. As usual, my opinion is just that and isn’t meant to be a final pronouncement about anything. My main goal when reading […]


In a slump

October 14, 2011

I am in the midst of a terrible reading slump right now. There was a point where I had nearly 40 reviews queued up for this blog because I was finishing books faster than I was posting. But those days are long gone. I have maybe two reviews queued up and two that I haven’t […]


Best and Worst of 2010

December 31, 2010

What would a December 31st post be without a Best/Worst list of some sort? I already posted a list for the first half of the year, which you can find right here. These are the Best and Worst titles that I read from July to December of 2010. As usual, these aren’t necessarily books that […]


Holiday Wish List ’10

November 30, 2010

Can you guess what I want for Christmas this year? If you said books, then you’re right on the money! I am always in need of books, books, and more books to read, not only to keep this blog going but also just because I feel lost if I’m not in the middle of two […]


Need a page-turner!

July 3, 2010

I’m looking for a page-turner to read this summer. I’m thinking something along the lines of The Da Vinci Code, where I simply couldn’t bear to put the book down and just had to keep reading to find out what happened next. It’s been a long time since I’ve read something that left me needing […]


Now Reading

May 27, 2010

I’m currently in the middle of several books because none of them has grabbed my attention to a sufficient degree that I want to stick with it until the end. Don’t get me wrong; these still represent a far more interesting option than reading a bunch of acnepril reviews, which I spent almost all of […]


Best and Worst of 2009

December 31, 2009

Well, since everyone else is doing year-end lists, I might as well get in on the fun! I’ll start off by listing the best books I read this year and then get into the ones I hated. Bear in mind that these aren’t necessarily books that were published in 2009, so you might not find […]


“To Read” List — Nov. ’09

November 3, 2009

I’m kind of stuck in no-man’s land in terms of my reading right now. I am in the middle of a bunch of different titles because I can’t seem to find anything to sustain my interest all the way through. As such, I want to make a quick list of the books I’m working on […]


Rating change?

September 9, 2009

I absolutely hate giving up on books. I don’t know why, but I’ll almost always read a book to the end, no matter how disastrously dull or boring it is. I guess as long as there are pages left, there’s hope that the story could suddenly get interesting. So even if reading a page of […]
