Review: Daniel Silva’s The New Girl

I was actually going to put this on Goodreads, but then I realized how many Daniel Silva books I’ve reviewed here over the various iterations this blog has gone through in 17 (!!) years and realized it has become a bit of a tradition. Also a tradition, attending his signings here in New York. Silva […]


Review: Scott Jurek’s North

Amazon tells me I bought Scott & Jenny Jurek’s North on July 3, 2018, shortly after I finished Eat & Run. Oops, didn’t mean to wait this long to read it. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida for Tuesday Topics to discuss this book. Let’s start with the ways I am not and will never […]


Review and a Race Recap: Matt Fitzgerald, Life is a Marathon

For this week’s Tuesday Topics, I’m linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share a race recap and book review. I was given a copy of this book to read via NetGalley. All opinions are my own. While Matt Fitzgerald is a name I’ve seen in perusing running titles, this is the first one of […]


Review: The Plant Based Runner

On Reading Yay, I can start a Weekly Run Down post with something other than PT, although I am still in and loving PT. This week I wanted to share my review of Jonathan Cairns’ The Plant Based Runner. Note: I received a copy of this book for review, but all opinions are my own. […]


Tuesday Topics: Run Like Duck

We know judging a book by its cover is bad.. but the title is OK, right? When Liz blogged about Run Like Duck, I was immediately intrigued. It just sounded like a fun book. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to share whether the book was as good as it’s title was funny. Spoiler: it […]


Travel Tuesday: Mark Mason’s Walk the Lines

aka walking around London. The rule for buying any books in England was as follows: not available for Kindle and/or some specific or unique tie. I think I did pretty well bringing back only 4* (one on the way from Amazon because I was still regretting not buying it at Stonehenge despite the font). The […]


Review: Daniel Silva’s The Other Woman

How did I spend Prime Day? Feeling like a rock star because somehow book signings have become a place that require wristbands. Epitome of nerd cool. Because I knew I had a long train ride to and fromĀ  our staff outing on Wednesday, I made the decision not to get Allon for my Kindle and […]


Review: Alyssa Mastromonaco’s Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?

I don’t consider myself a political person, in fact I generally don’t enjoy discussing politics. Somehow, this has translated into reading three political books this year with one more on #20BooksOfSummer. That said, if you’re looking for a discussion of the 2016 election cycle, or an in-depth look at the Obama presidency, this book isn’t […]


Review: Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run and #20BooksOfSummer

I’ve succumbed to #20BooksOfSummer, more on that later, and the first is Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run which Liz posted to me after she read it. Is there any better kind of friend than the fellow bookworm? Never say never and all that, but there are two things in life I probably will never do: […]


Review: Finders Keepers

was: #AAM2018, You’re on Sacred Land AKA the conference blog that was never finished ***. I think Craig Childs first crossed my radar during my New Mexico trip in 2015. I’ve certainly had House of Rain on my Kindle for some time and as I was sifting through a box of books I got from […]
