Anxiously Awaited Sequels

Anxiously Awaited Sequels

In this age of streaming video, everybody’s binging. Binge watching is the practice of watching multiple episodes of a television program in rapid succession. I’m currently re-watching all seven seasons of Star Trek: Voyager. Because I can. And I often like to binge read, as well. Why wait years for the next book in the series, when you can just read them all at once?

21 Fantasy Reads to Share With Your Children

21 Fantasy Reads to Share With Your Children

When I had kids, one of the things I looked forward to was being able to share the things I love with them. As an 80’s/90’s kid I got excited when they rebooted My Little Pony and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I loved when my kids were old enough to start watching the Harry Potter movies, when they got obsessed with slime (Gak if you kick it old school), and I am still working on turning them into comic book nerds. But what I want to impart to them the most is my love of reading.
