Book Review: The Lord God Made Them All (Book 63 of 100)

I liked the book, the 4th volume of the James Harriot autobiography. It seemed a bit more disorganized than the other 3 books. Rosie, his daughter, was born in the course of this book. I was disappointed that he was so sexist towards his daughter wanting to be a country vet. But then again it was... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: The Big Over Easy (Book 62 of 100)

I love Nursery Crimes by Jasper Fforde. They make a bit more sense then The Thursday Next Series, which at times make no series at all. The story of suffering, but brilliant Detective Jack Spratt, who works with nursery rhyme characters. Jack Spratt, who we meet in The Well of Lost Plots (a Thursday... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Dave Barry CD Collection (Book 61 of 100)

This was an amalgamation of three, unbridged Dave Barry books- Dave Barry is not Taking This Sitting Down, Dave Barry Hits Below the Beltway, and Boogers Are my Beat. I'm counting it as one book because that was how I checked it out of the library. I liked this compilation, because even through they... Sign in to see full entry.

Commentary: My Third Twenty Books

Having finished book 60 yesterday, I am quite confident that I will reach my goal of reading 100 books by December 31st.This Section was a very mixed bag. There were a few books written for teenagers, more Artemis Fowl, more Sarah Vowell and Barbara Ehrenreich. There was also the discovery of Steve... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Trans-Sister Radio (Book 60 of 100)

Trans-Sister Radio by Chris Bohjalian is the best book I've ever read. I rate it a 9.95. I am surprised that the best written work I'd ever found was written by cis (comfortably bodily gendered), white, able-bodied man about transgender people, Normally, I hate dominant culture authors views of...

Book Review: Niaomi and Ely's No Kiss List (Book 59 of 100)

This book was very funny, very good, and very sad. At times it was all three at once. It's the story of Naomi, a straight high school freshman who is falling out of NYU. The love of her life is Eli, her across the hall neighbor, was she's known since birth practically. It's not Eli doesn't love her.... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: All Things Wise and Wonderful (Book 58 of 100)

The third James Harriott biography installment was a war book that never really was very warlike. There was no actual combat, just the standard animal stories although Harriott relates his typical animal stories were intermingled with his war-related memories, i.e. a person who looks like a...

Book Review: All Things Bright and Beautiful (Book 57 of 100)

I happily listened to the second volume of James Harriott's biography. It's fun, a nice work based tale of someone who loves his job. He also his wife and his bosses and animals. He'll goes to war in this one, in fact that's how the book ends. It's so sad! I like the story of his feud with the... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Something Rotten (Book 56 of 100)

This is the 4th book in the Thursday Next series. There is one more to go and then I'll be like other fans waiting on a new installment. I'm happy to report that the more Fforde I read the more sense it makes. This makes me because at one point at compare Jasper Fforde to the Bible, in terms of... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: The Trench (Book 55 of 100)

I'm glad it was to hot to go aware today. I have been reading The Trench all day long. I didn't expect to like it, sequels usually suck. I loved Meg, even though it was not my usual genre. I ordered all of the series (there are 4, thus far), but honestly didn't expect much. I was happily wrong. In... Sign in to see full entry.
