Book Review: The Eyre Affair (book 44 out of 100)

I like time travel novels, as you all know. The first Thursday Next novel: The Eyre Affair is just such a novel. Everyone loved it, which usually means I will hate it. I wasn’t thrilled with it. I’m not sure what’s going on. In this weird alternative history novel, people can jump back and forth... Sign in to see full entry.

book Review: The Making of the Fittest (Book 43 of 100)

Those of you who know me will know how strange it is that I have decided to review an evolutionary biology book. I have, as I have noted, a good deal of unresolved rage at scientists and what they have permitted or encourage to be done to individuals who have bodies like mine. I suppose reviewing...

Book Review: The Pilgrims of Rayne Pendragon Book 8 (Book 42 of 100)

I haven’t read any Pendragon in a while, but decided that I should finish it so I could return it to the audiobook club in case someone else wants to read it. I love Pendragon, but needed a break from the Pendragon saga. In this story, Bobby journeys to the territory of Ebarra. They are advanced in... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox (Book 41 of 100)

Artemis Fowl and the Time Paradox is the last Artemis book so far, although a new one is scheduled out in August—Yay! I also have gotten the non-series Artemis book from the library and I’m looking forward to reading it to get over my Artemis withdrawal. Google search reveals that there is also a...

Commentary: My Second 20 Books.

I liked my second fifth of books (21-40). I read more Pendragon, nearly finished Artemis Fowl books 1 to 5 were completed in this reading session, as well as rediscovering Sarah Vowell and Barbara Ehrenreich. Two authors I had known before. I spent a lot of time on history this fifth, learning a lot... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: The Wish (Book 40 out of 100)

Every 8 th grader who is on the outside looking at the in crowd has wished to be “in”. Wilma, this book's main character, is no different than any other middle schooler in that regard. But the difference is that she actually gets her wish, only to discover that it’s maybe not all it’s cracked up to... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Artemis Fowl and the Opal Deception (Book 39 of 100)

I found Artemis Fowl and the Opal Deception and finished it today. It tells the story of Opal Koboi and her fake coma and cloning (the fairies are way more advanced than us in this regard). It also tells how Artemis Fowl got his fairy memory back. He was mind wiped (given severe amnesia), in... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: The Partly Cloudy Patriot ( Book 38 out of 100)

I have been a Sarah Vowell fan since I discovered that she was the voice of Violet in The Incredibles. Sarah and I have a lot in common. We’re both workaholic fact nuts. Her thing is U.S. history. My thing is disability rights. I’m not much of an American history person, but this memoir made me... Sign in to see full entry.

Book Review: Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony (Book 37 of 100)

Ever forget the book you were reading before a big trip and had to start reading a new book, worse if it’s a book on series. I brought non-Artemis books but they were all too deep for an activist on her way for a hardcore activism week. Am I too awful for wanting a little light reading? I decided...

Book Review: Artemis Fowl and the Eternity Code (Book 36 of 100)

I liked this book. It read much faster than book #2, which (as you know) I didn’t care for the pacing of. Artemis is up to his old tricks, he’s manufactured a cube from stolen fairy technology that will render all computers obsolete. He tries to make a deal with very shady American businessman Jon...
