What kind of fool?
The One-Man Book Club has been meeting in secret for quite some time over at Goodreads, if you ever feel like following along. I’ve been slowly going back through my shelves and adding thoughts and reviews of books I read years ago. For some reason, all this time I’ve managed to never notice a neato…Read More
Get your shine on with a FREE copy of Anne-Marie O’Connor’s ‘The Lady in Gold’! (Yours to kleempt!)
Let me make up for my dereliction of duty as a blogger with this chance to win one of THREE free copies of my friend Anne-Marie O’Connor’s new book The Lady in Gold: The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt’s Masterpiece, ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer.‘ Yes, it’s another TONSIL book giveaway! Anne-Marie has been working on…Read More
One-Man Book Club’s summer reading credits
Oh, ranger! Summer is over! And so the One-Man Book Club reconvenes one last time* (more on that down below) for its summer vacation extra-reading credit. Books came along on a lot journeys since early spring: Out to Kansas and back, out to Albuquerque and back, on a train to Staunton, Va., and back, and…Read More
I was trying to figure out why I haven’t blogged in so long (erm, THREE MONTHS) other than the usual excuses, most of them having to do with my undying admiration for what Nancy Nall manages to pull off nearly every weekday morning of the year — while also working her fingers to the bone…Read More
One-Man Book Club: My pals are writing books faster than I can GIVE YOU A FREE COPY!
Book luvvers, the One-Man Book Club has some friends and they have been — I believe the term busy as shit applies here, writing some very good books. I’ve got my own copies and if you’re lucky I’m going to give you yours. But really what I want you to do is go out an’…Read More
One-Man Book Club: Now where were we?
(“Arlo & Janis“: Not only is it America’s most marital-relations-positive — and cat-positive, and power-walk positive — comic strip, it also honors old, analog media every now and again. I never miss a day of “A&J” — it’s the only comic strip I read.) All right, Tonsilites, at last, another session of the One-Man Book…Read More
If my book-related blog “to-do” list had anything to do with a public library, I would owe some serious overdue fines by now. The One-Man Book Club languishes; since the last post, none of the members are speaking to one another and we have about a half-dozen books that have gone un-discussed. The neglect has…Read More
He has a pulse (and a booty)
Actual proof that I still exist: National Journal‘s Hotline came knocking the other day, with lighthearted questions for their Friday Feature Q&A. The what? The hunh? National Journal is a D.C. publication that is so essential to the Beltway power/media structure that it costs, like, hundreds (thousands?) of dollars to subscribe. Otherwise I would link…Read More
One-Man Book Club takes the EZPass lane
At this rate, the One-Man Book Club will soon be meeting at St. Elizabeths. (And no, Mr. Hinckley, we’re not going to read any books about Jodie Foster.) I actually had a fantasy during all the deadlines for fall TV reviews: If I could get just sick enough — something that required convalescence but not,…Read More
Over-served again at the One-Man Book Club
About a week ago, after manic amounts of book-reading this summer, the One-Man Book Club unanimously approved a moratorium (1 in favor; none opposed) that prohibits even the cracking-open and general perusing of any book on the “to read” stack until the club confronts and discusses the entire backlog of already-read and partially-read books. This…Read More
