after almost exactly a year's hiatus (weird, no?) i am back. probably no readers anymore. but hey! that's alright. because my current goal is READ FOR FUN, and so i am rededicating this space, and therefore my personal reading time, to books that i want to read -- new or no, popular or ignored, whatever takes my fancy. coming up: my love/hate relationship with The Magicians by Lev Grossman.
