  • Boys will be boys!

    Reading! There is something hilarious about “unmentionables!” Especially for those little boys! There have been some really creative books lately that will make you change your mind about talking in hushed tones. These books will teach you a bit about fashion, the important role of vocabulary...

  • The Longest Trip Home

    After reading several mixed reviews on John Grogan's newest book , I took the plunge and decided I'd see for myself. I really didn't think there was any way I could like the book as much as the bestselling " Marley and Me ", but I didn't think it would be as bad as some of the...

  • Outside my comfort zone - a fun place to be!

    I once saw the librarian Nancy Pearl speak at this library, and she advised 'reading outside of one's comfort zone'. I tried recently it with Beat the Reaper , a debut novel by Josh Bazell , and frankly, I liked it. Ok. To start with - I am not a fast reader. That'll come into play at...

  • Give It Up

    It is time for Janet Evanovich to stop writing Stephanie Plum novels. I mean it. I started reading the series seven years ago when Seven Up was the most recently released book in the series and it quickly became my favorite series. I still read the new ones as they come out; I can't stop. They really...

  • "Chuck" is about a nerd that becomes a spy...essentially my life story

    In the television show Chuck , Charles "Chuck" Bartowski plays your typical 20-something computer-geek, stuck in a dead-end job at Buy More's Nerd Herd (a less-than-subtle parody of Best Buy's Geek Squad). He lives an uneventful life with his sister Ellie, until one day when he receives...

  • "Air Guitar Nation" cranks the make-believe volume up to 11

    How many times has this happened to you...you're listening to music and an epic guitar solo comes on. What do you do?!? You bust out the air guitar, showing onlookers the musical virtuoso you are. Apparently, air guitar is bigger than I realized. Since 1996, Oulu, Finland has been the home of the...

  • "Run Fatboy, Run" limps to the finish line

    I've always been a fan of Simon Pegg's work. In his previous efforts ( Shaun of the Dead , Hot Fuzz , & Spaced ), Pegg & co-star Nick Frost teamed up with absolutely hilarious results! Run Fatboy, Run is Pegg's latest film...and unfortunately it doesn't live up to its predecessors...

  • "Spaced" a short-lived, hilarious TV comedy

    I'm a fan of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. In the States, this comedic duo is best known for Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (both of which I highly recommend!). They got their start in a British television comedy called Spaced ; it ran for two seasons (14 episodes total) during 1999-2001. It finally...

  • Perfect fireside reading for Fall

    When I was a kid, I loved to prop myself up in a wing chair by the fire, stick my feet out, and read a good book. While I don't have a fireplace in my house, I have established a comfortable little reading ritual for myself when the nights are cool, and this fall I'm reading a few books that...
