Book Notes and Reviews
I posted a review of The Roots of Rap: 16 Bars on the 4 Pillars of Hip-Hop, by Carole Boston Weatherford and Frank Morrison, on Goodreads, and I’m expanding on it slightly below.
I was excited about this book and assumed I would love it because of the subject matter, but I guess I’m a little disappointed and feel the need to talk about it.
I published a review of A Wolf Called Wander by Rosanne Perry on Granite Media and also posted it on Goodreads.
Enjoyed reading this one to my kids at bedtime.
I published a review of Other Words for Home by Jasmine Warga on Granite Media and also posted it on Goodreads.
I really wanted to put screenshots of this entire poem in the review, but couldn’t justify it on Granite Media. But here, I get to do whatever I want, so…
Today I happened upon an excerpt from Tommy Pico’s forthcoming poem/book Feed, and I’m weirdly excited about it now.
I reviewed this book last week, and in doing so made some serious mistakes, which I’m hoping to learn from going forward.

Posted: 2014.08.19A few weeks go I was at my wife’s family’s cabin and I was lurking around in a bedroom browsing my in-laws’ old bookshelf. Hidden in the midst of a notable collection of Louis L’Amour novels, with an old framed photograph sitting on the shelf in front of them, I discovered copies of the original Earthsea Trilogy by Ursula LeGuin: A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, and The Farthest Shore.
