Caught up in four sentences or less

Oh my, what a summer I've had.  Between preparing for a cross-country move, driving about two thousand miles for a wedding and a vacation, moving 1700 miles away to the East Coast, frantically unpacking and getting ready for school to start, writing reviews of books has been so low on my list it nearly fell off.  But I'm back!  I'm ready to get caught up and dive into reviews!  Instead of decl

A Girl Named Zippy & She Got Up Off the Couch

I owe Jenny big for introducing me to Haven Kimmel. I loved my first taste of her writing in The Solace of Leaving Early, but didn't enjoy her newest Iodine. That disappointment was more than reversed when I finally sat down to read her first book, A Girl Named Zippy: Growing Up Small in Mooreland, Indiana. I resisted reading Zippy initially because I couldn't get excited about a memoir. Which

Southern Sass, Faith-filled Imagery and English School Shenanigans

Sometimes I read a book that I honestly don't have much to say about. Write a whole post? Just a blurb? It's a quandary. Such is the case for "Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skank: and other words of delicate Southern wisdom" by Celia Rivenbark. It was a collection of essays by a humor writer from North Carolina. It had its funny moments. She writes with a pretty hilarious twang and

I’m Just a Geek Too

I love Star Trek. I'm not ashamed of it. I fall in the category of The Next Generation lovers. I don't much like the original Star Trek and I've never gotten into the spin-offs from TNG. I'm sure they have their redeeming values, but I'm just not interested. Give me Jean-Luc Picard and William Riker any day, baby. I love the story lines, the characters and all things Trekkie. I remember watc

Pure Drivel

I wish I had something witty and profound to say about this book, but I don't. There simply wasn't enough to comment on, though it was definitely a fun read. A good book to pass an hour to so with. This said I have to admit that I love Steve Martin. Not everybody does, but I do. I love his post-"I'm a craaaaazy guy" humor and when he sits down to write a book, I think he is in his true elemen
