Happy New Year! You have got to read a Japanese short story book called Monkey Brain Sushi.
Hmm, I couldn't find it online. Anyone else hear of this?
Another year of you pretending to be a critic. What makes you think that anyone cares?
First, I am not a critic, though I may criticize. This blog is meant to convey my thoughts about my current reading material. No one posts my comments on the back of their novels, though I do get a grateful email from an author from time to time. Whether I'm getting 400 views a day or 400,000 (and it's somewhere in the middle), I will continue to add to the blog to show that I've done something substantial... the year of 150 books. Read on...
I love your blog, but I miss the pressure of you reading a large number of books in a short amount of time. Any plans to do this in the future?
I'm considering a book a day for 2009. I would have to go on sabbatical and take out a third mortgage and pretend I don't have children, though.

You promised a new photo in your about me section.
New photo. Nudity preferred.
Sickos. I look two years older and wiser, and much more zen instead of moody. Use your imaginations.
