Figuring It Out

I have spent a lot of time over the last few months trying to figure out which direction I want to head in my future. The truth is I have been a little depressed. I have had a hard time shaking it. I have not been blogging or writing very much. I know enough about […]

I Have A Book Issue… Maybe… Sort Of… Nah

The first step to fixing a problem is admitting there is one in the first place. I have a book issue. I can’t stop buying them. My house is filled with them. I have cases and cases of autographed books. I have probably a hundred books on my Kindle waiting to be read. Everytime a […]

Kindle In The Classroom

I recently read an article in the New York Times about teachers in Idaho resisting their states push of technology into their classrooms. A lot of the article made it seem like once again teachers were afraid of being replaced by a computer and/or losing money to technology which could have been spent on salaries. […]

Confessions Of A Book Addict

Hello, my name is Christopher and I am addicted to books. I write this confession in a room which is currently filled with books. Every wall, every nook, every space I can cram a book in there is one. I have so much credit at the used book store here in town I have stopped […]

Fuzzy Nation

I should know better than to start a book late in the evening when I know it is going to be good. This is a problem I have had ever since I became a veracious reader. As a child I would read well into the night and far past my bedtime. By high school my […]

It is that wonderful time where I share with you the lovely things which are making my geek heart do the tango. It has been a good month for reading. One of my best in a long time. Got a lot of novels read and liked quite a few of them. I am really trying […]

I Am Not A Crook

> I am an honest person. If I see someone drop some money on the ground I return it. If the grocery store forgets to ring something up I point it out. I am sometimes brutally honest when people ask me questions (I try to make sure I let people know that before I answer). […]

Music & Movie Industry – Showing Their Ass Again

Napster should have been the wake up call. The splash of hot coffee across the lap. The world of art and intellectual property was changed forever but the big media conglomerates thought they could put the rabbit back in the hat. They have spent the last 11 years trying but I think you could argue […]
