Review: Daniel Silva’s The Order


aka the only series I ever review here anymore. That might change if I stop reading crap soon, but probably not.¬† I like Goodreads for the books, but I love finding my old Gabriel Allon posts here.¬†Tradition! is not just for Fiddler.

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 […]

Travel Tuesday: Pre-Roman Britain


Unlike previous trip recaps, my 2018 England trip is not going to be chronological but rather thematic. My trip was rather hap hazard and doing a day by day travelog just won’t work.¬† I’d like to think they’ll take up the next Tuesdays and Thursday as Travel Tuesday or Throwback Thursday, but I know my […]

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: Prisoners of Geography


Has been a while since I reviewed a book in a more in-depth fashion than on my Goodreads, but this one is really resonant. It was also bought on my first venture to the new Amazon Books store at the Time Warner Center. While I don’t love everything about the store and don’t frequently buy […]
