Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. Hmm . . .

Who’s Jack Reacher? Well, he’s my pick for most awesome hero in thriller novels right now. The first book in the series, The Killing Floor, starts after Reacher has left his job in the Military Police. His plan is to go wherever the wind takes him with the clothes on his back and a toothbrush. […]

The Fantastic Adventure

I’m thinking, by now, everyone’s read or heard about that New York Times article proclaiming that publishing one book a year is slacking.

Since her father’s death, she’s had to feed and take care of her severely depressed mother and her younger sister. Katniss is […]

Something Fun Before the Holidays
