About the Blog of Books


I’ll admit, at the beginning I didn’t know what I was doing. Over a year ago I thought I was going to try and just write a typical blog about my personal feelings and my feelings on world events. I discovered that I wasn’t that interesting and, even if I was that interesting, I wasn’t that interested in coming right out and saying things – a quick look through the archives will prove me a liar.

Last year, the goal was to read a hundred books. Between about a half dozen changes to my work life and two big moves of physical location over a six month span of time, this was pretty much impossible. I hope that life isn’t settling down, but I hope that my reading and writing time are becoming regular. The year is 2014, the format will remain the same. I’ve gotten a much more thorough education on web writing


Like that you are already bored.

These are not high minded academic book reviews, just the thoughts of a pedantic attention whore at a computer. If I was going to give you academic I would devote 1 month to the study of 1 book, the essays would five pages long and even fewer people would click on the page, I dare not say “read.” 

I warn you, I will be personal, but I will try to keep it in the context of what I’m reading. I will talk about my writing, but only because that’s the entire reason I started this blog.
