I was on vacation, and so I bought some books. Well, I bought about 28 books or so. Hey, most of them were used (and the new ones were from independent bookstores, so that's cool.. right?). 10 of those books... Continue reading

Over the last two weeks I've been on vacation (hurrah for working at a University!). Since Marisa had some book events scheduled in Vermont and Maine she suggested I come along, and a vacation was born! Sadly, over those two... Continue reading

I had this crazy idea: I should do a podcast in which I would be joined by a guest (a single guest) and discuss a random episode of Star Trek. I know what you're thinking, "That doesn't sound too crazy."... Continue reading

John Scalzi posted his Hugo reading strategy, so I thought I'd post my plan of attack this year. As in past years, Jason Snell is forcing me to read all the Hugo nominated novels (ok, he isn't forcing me but... Continue reading

This Oral History of Mystery Science Theater is great. I was introduced to MST3K in college by my friend Dan Langevin. The stand out quote from the whole piece for me was this: What the hell do you want with... Continue reading

I like to read, though I seem to acquire books at a far faster rate than I can ever hope to read. The Kindle hasn't helped this at all, though now the books take up less space (I still buy... Continue reading

The invention of the browser tab radically changed the way I browse the Internet, mostly for the better. I now often have two or two browser windows open with upwards of 25 sites open. One of the downsides of having... Continue reading

I'm a big fan of Amazon's Kindle (as you all know). I'm less of a fan of Amazon's management tools for said Kindle, all found at Manage Your Kindle. If case you haven't used Manage Your Kindle before (and I'm... Continue reading

I watch a lot of television and I don't mind saying so. TV has a bad reputation, but there are plenty of great things to watch (and plenty of not so great things... I watch my fair share of vapid... Continue reading

I'm celebrating all the things I liked in 2013 with a series of posts I'm cleverly calling 2013 in Review. Click that link to see all the entries. I'm a bit of a gadget hound, and I've bought a bunch... Continue reading

Yesterday, along with the rest of Philadelphia's populace, I was out doing some last minute holiday shopping. I went to several stores, as you do, and found some great presents for my loved ones. Somehow, I found myself in a... Continue reading

I just ordered a physical book from Amazon (this one, if you must know) and above you'll see the clever thing Amazon did. Since they have the Kindle version of the book, Amazon appeals to my impatience and offers a... Continue reading

Over the last few weeks I've mulled over the options for my next smartphone. I pretty much settled on the Moto X as Scott McNulty's Top Next Smartphone for a number of reasons. I read the reviews, checked the specs,... Continue reading

I have something of a Kindle problem, so you can bet your hippy that I have the latest Kindle Paperwhite in my hot little hands. The fine folks at Tech Hive asked me to review it, and review it I... Continue reading

io9 is a blog that confuses me. The tag line is "We come from the future," which is open enough to allow them to post whatever they like (and who am I to tell them how to live their lives?)... Continue reading
