Unless you venture off the road and look for places to be immediately and completely present with your city, you miss the opportunity to find its hidden beauty.
The second of my Neil Gaiman books this week is another graphic novel. I'm actually really starting to enjoy the depth and complexity that well-done graphic novels can bring to a story.

This week will feature a couple of fantastic reads (well, one listen, and the … Continue reading Coming Up this Week!

I knew it wasn't likely to be an easy read for me, but I didn't expect to both like and dislike the author at the same time. I've never really … Continue reading 52 Weeks, 52 Books – Book 19
