I miss the old Internet days when one just had a blog (or a livejournal!) and it all went there: the pretty pictures, the book reviews, the ancient quotations veiling political fears, the notes on pedagogy, etc. But we must adapt to this multi-platform age if we want to continue to promote every aspect of our lonely lives to strangers.
And here, if you even care, are a month’s worth of Goodreads reviews (I also read William Giraldi’s excellent new novel, Hold the Dark, but didn’t review it as I’m writing a review-essay on Giraldi for Rain Taxi; the Woodrell and Hannah below are there as background reading for my Giraldi essay since he’s counted them among his influences–I am now an admirer of Woodrell’s and not much of an admirer of Hannah’s):
I think that’s all I have to share for now, unless the hackers turn something up in the cloud. Have a good day, gentle reader!
