In the meantime…

After the first couple months of the Time 100 project, where I started and stopped a few times, I now seem to be settling into a good groove, finishing another book off the list every three weeks or so. Since it now looks as if I’ve committed to this project for the long haul, I’ve also spruced up the site a bit.

But when I’m not reading books for this project (or just reading books for fun), I occasionally submit official reviews, all professional-like, to other publications. I figure I may as well use this blog to post about them, too. So you’ll probably be seeing thoughts on other books not in the Time list on this site.

Here is a list of the reviews I’ve written for the New York Journal of Books to date:

These Dreams of You, by Steve Erickson (presently my favorite book of 2012)

The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green (As good a young adult novel as I’ve read in a while)

Taft 2012, by Jason Heller

Walk Like a Man: Coming of Age with the Music of Bruce Springsteen, by Robert Wiersema (I couldn’t resist reviewing this one)

How the Mistakes Were Made, by Tyler McMahon

There but for the, by Ali Smith

The Art of Fielding, by Chad Harbach

House of Holes, by Nicholson Baker (Forget 50 Shades of Grey; this is erotic fiction as it should be; funny, over-the-top, and without a trace of self-importance)

The Postmortal, by Drew Magary

The Leftovers, by Tom Perrotta (my last ride on the Perrotta train)
