A household with two working parents and two children consists of many things but is largely defined by two: routine and chaos.
Ryan Holiday is my favorite author.
“You don’t read these books; you live in them.”
– Janet Maslin, The New York Times
Most novels are not good.
There’s a YouTube channel called the The Art of Improvement that does those funky illustrated videos to add a visual to written text.
Back in 2019, they asked if they could do the same for my essay “Get the Most Out of Your Books – Be an Active Reader.” I, of course, enthusiastically said yes! It’s a piece of which I’m quite proud, so to have someone not only appreciate it, but build on it in this way is very cool.
My seventh annual best of the year newsletter with the greatest books I enjoyed this year – both fiction and nonfiction.
My latest newsletter was just sent out where I write about working out, discipline equaling freedom, loving yet another film that flopped, The Godfather novel, a rap song that made me feel like a teenager again, the books I read, and much more!
Anyone that has studied or researched the finer points of books, particularly rare books, knows that it is a more complicated and layered world than most would imagine.
How do you identify a first edition? What makes a book rare? What is an “antiquarian” book? What makes a book valuable? And who are these people that dedicate their lives to answering such questions?
My latest newsletter was just sent out where I talk about the 76ers, new hip-hop releases, all the things I’ve been writing, my favorite online writer, and, of course, the books I’ve read. Also, some other stuff, including something so so embarrassing.
My May 2019 newsletter includes tidbits about some the NBA, some podcasts, and, of course, books.
Each month, I send a newsletter that is a collection of all new random thoughts and scribblings on a variety of subjects, including some things I enjoyed that month – books, TV shows, films, sports, articles, whatever, as well as quick reviews of books I read. It’s free and it goes right to your inbox!
