This Looks Gooooood

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

I don’t mean to turn this blog into my reading list.  Or my Netflix-style Barnes and Noble queue.  But…

I saw this today, and I think it looks great.  Definitely up my alley:


Maybe have a look-see?  Maybe you like?  I’m going to get it when it comes out (tomorrow) and I’ll be sure to tell you all about it.

The Amnesiac, Part 2

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Alright, so it’s a little silly that I’m reblogging my own content, so let’s just get that out of the way up front.  Ridiculous.


I’m right in the middle of reading The Amnesiac by Sam Taylor right now, and it’s amazing.  One of those books that makes you miss your subway stop.  It has an introspective, existential tone reminiscent of Camus or Kafka, but without the sinister edge.  And it’s one of those great pieces of literature that keeps shifting underneath you as you read it — so just when you think you have it figured out, it changes.

It’s excellent.  You should definitely check it out.

Here’s the original post from VSL, if you want to know more.
