The Paris Wife

I know I’m a little late to the game with The Paris Wife by Paula Mclain. Although this book was getting rave reviews (including two great reviews from fellow BGBers – here and here), I put off reading The Paris Wife, because I thought it might be a little too highfalutin for me. I’ve never [...]

Meg and 826

Long-time readers will know that we are big fans of the non-profit kids’ writing centers 826, which were founded by Dave Eggers.  My daughter Meghan (who you may know from our Booktime with Meg posts) and I were talking about the various 826 centers and their cool “fronts” like 826 Brooklyn’s Super Hero Supply store.

Decatur Book Festival Kickoff

Last night was the Decatur Book Festival’s kickoff press party.  This year’s poster was unveiled (below).  The author highlights were touched upon (see full list), and the keynote speaker was announced.  This year’s keynote will be given by Congressman John Lewis, who has a new autobiographical graphic novel series.  I am particularly excited about the [...]

Warm Bodies

I thought Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion might be an interesting read, because it offered a different perspective on the zombie apocalypse.   It turns out that the zombie perspective isn’t all that interesting. This book is the zombie apocalypse through the eyes of a zombie. “R”, as he calls himself because he can’t remember [...]

America Again: Re-Becoming The Greatness We Never Weren’t

But despite all the popular reviews, I did not enjoy his latest book America Again: Re-Becoming  The Greatness We Never Weren’t, and frankly, it [...]

I loved Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. Just the right amount of suspense and crazy. And even though I felt that the ending of Gone Girl fell a little flat, the rest of the book was so good that I still heartily recommend it to my family and friends. Enter Dark Places. I believe that Gillian [...]

The Rains of—OMG! What just happened?!?

Like the rest of the world, my fragile psyche was shaken to its core by that damn Game of Thrones episode Sunday.  I had to go back and watch it again.  How’d we all miss it – foreshadowing was EVERYWHERE.   Best reaction on the twitterverse was by novelist Erin Morgenstern who went with a [...]

While we were gone

During our hiatus, all kinds of wonderful book things were going on.  The guys at The Lonely Island (which includes Andy Samberg) cooked up this amazing song about the correct way to use semi-colons. In unrelated news, an Oxford professor drew gasps at the Hay Festival when he suggested that grammar pedants “relax.”
