I’ve read

Published by under Current Read

The Book Thief  by Markus Zusak (Knopf, $11.99, young adult).  Set in the suburbs of Munich during the build-up to World War II, he deals with very heavy subject matter in a non heavy-handed way.  It’s perfect for young-adults.  His snappy writing style and spunky characters are compelling.  Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson (Random House, $15.00, […]

My Best 5 of the Year

Published by under Full of ideas,Subby Love

Since I’ve only read about five books that were first printed in 2007, I expanded my field of choice to all the books I read through the course of this year for this list. Mea culpa. In no particular order…   **Michael Moorcock : Behold the Man During my evangelical childhood I often daydreamed about […]

Hats off

Published by under Misc.,Subby Love

Coffee anyone?

Published by under Bestsellers

How is it that working retail can induce the same repercussions as a night of heavy drinking?  I feel like I’ve been run over by a truck.  Something about that is just not fair. You know it’s time to take a break when you find yourself dreaming about helping folks pick out gifts. But, see, that’s […]

Shirts

Published by under Sidelines,Subby Love

 Three cheers to Jeremy, staff member emeritus, for modeling the men’s shirt.  Available in medium, large, and xlarge. We have some new women’s shirts (left).  They are ribbed knit, so they’re a bit more clingy, a little longer, and a slightly darker shade than the first batch of regular girly tees (right).  Both styles available in small […]
