Review: _The Last Policeman:_ A chilling dystopia with some surprising twists

One of the books that I had been looking forward to reading this year was Ben H. Winters' The Last Policeman. While I don't care much for very many dystopias, I had heard that this was one worth looking out for. And when I spotted it on a list for my nook,

Review: _Dressing Downton:_ A fun little book that shows the changing fashions of the Great War and the roaring 20s

I confess that I am a nut about Downton Abbey. From the series to the ancillary books that go into the background of the television programme, it's a pretty good bet that I will pick up a copy for my personal collection. Recently, there was a tour here in

Review: _The White Cascade:_ The chronicle of an avalanche in the high Cascade mountains

When I find a good historical account, of well, anything, I tend to jump right in. I spent a good portion of my childhood in Washington state, where the Cascade mountains are a constant presence. Every summer, my granparents would load up their VW van with

Quiet day, a very happy wallow in Downton Abbey

Just finished watching the first episode of the final season of Downton Abbey. Very glad to see one dangling plot line be resolved for good. I also indulged in an order of chinese food for dinner. I will almost always say yes to chinese food. Starting to

Review: _Star Wars: The Force Awakens_ I will not be popular for my view of this film.

I have been careful in avoiding spoilers or reviews of the current Star Wars film. Being that I watched the first film, A New Hope, with great delight, and really loved the second film, The Empire Strikes Back, with little to deter me from seeing the rest.

Where I have been

Winter is not an easy time for me. The darkness gets to me, and when it is cold, and my body is acting up, all I really want to do is hibernate and stay in bed. Having a Nook makes it worse, I can just lay in bed and watch Netflix or Hulu, or read, and tha

Review: _Slightly Foxed -- but still desirable:_ A collection of terms and drawings of the arcane world of book collectors.

Every few months, a very heavy box arrives at my doorstep by way of the Royal Mail, and much to the despair of my partner, J, I dive into another shipment from the Folio Society. The Folio Society publishes high end quality, and sometimes very rare books,

Pre holiday jollies. And all that.

Not much has been going on lately, just me bitching about the cold and how it is making me feel. Mostly rotten, as my joints have been swollen and aching lately. Today was fairly busy. J and I went to the market to get the shopping done, at the unspeakabl
