TRIBES not Forgotten

Reading Rants posts a list of the most under-appreciated young adult books of the decade. Arthur Slade's TRIBES (one of our favs) is featured. This is one title that definitely deserves more love. Check it out!

Kirkus No More

After over 75 years and almost 400,000 reviews, Kirkus is calling it quits. Say what you will about hard-to-please, I still call this a major bummer.

My Favorite Novel

of course is MIDDLEMARCH. (how can anyone answer differently?) however, beyond that, i am willing to say— but only because i am asked so dang much— ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND is the book i read the most. now, that is a supreme masterpiece of English prose. every writer reading this blog ought to stop reading it and savor that delicacy immediately. it is pure edification.
