For the first time in my life,… Read More Four Great Books for Parents’ First Years with Baby
He was a genius when it came to music and entertainment, but he was also human, like we all are. Unfortunately for him, Michael Jackson didn’t have the privacy or the space to work on his flaws and subsequently to grow with each lesson learned. Throughout the years, we have seen and read countless interviews… Read More Book Review: The Michael Jackson Tapes by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach
As an author, a reader, and a reviewer—what I refer to as my three book personalities—I occupy an interesting space in which I see books very differently from someone who is just a reader, just an author, or just a reviewer—although to be fair, someone who is an author or a reviewer is usually quite… Read More BookGrabbr: A Way for Readers to Discover New Books and an Innovative Marketing Tool for Authors
A as lifelong bookaholic, I quickly learned how to get my fix.

Imagine some of your favourite classics (and some less favourite ones that made you sweat in class): The Catcher in… Read More Book Review: Twitterature by Alexander Aciman and Emmett Rensin
As winter drags on (dratted groundhog, why did you have to see your shadow?) I can’t help but turn towards my favorite source of comfort: books. Of course, in this weather, the accompanying hot drink of the moment helps, too. Since I have long finished my pile of fiction books (the non-fiction pile is a… Read More Books, books and more books: Good-Bye, Winter Blues

It’s always fun, at this time of the year, to look back at the last 12 months and see how far we have come.
