Overdrive

There is a great app for electronic book and audiobook lovers that I haven’t written about yet. A couple times every month I find myself bringing it up in conversation and the people I’m talking with haven’t heard about it. So, here you go my small, but loyal, readership. If you love to borrow books […]

The Drop Box (2014)

They’re not the unnecessary ones in the world. God sent them here for a purpose. ~ Pastor Lee Jong-rak ~ The Drop Box (2014) is an engaging documentary about a pastor in Korea who takes in abandoned children. Sadly, the situation in this movie is not uncommon, that of women and families abandoning children they […]

Movies/TV Show of 2014

I am a HUGE movie and TV fan. I watch way too much of both each year and I enjoy it thoroughly. This year I have watched over 100 movies/tv shows (check out the full list here –> my list!). That’s quite a few to pick from. However, this year I will say it is […]

Books of 2014

So, each year I attempt to read around 45-60 books. And since I’ve started keeping track in 2012, I’ve nailed those numbers last year and this year (2012 saw me read a piddly 39 books). It’s fun to keep track of, although, I find that any time I do this kind of thing I find […]

Robin Hood: The Legendary Musical (Hart House Theatre)

9/10 (+1) Last night my wife and I went to see Hart House Theatre’s offering of “Robin Hood: The Legendary Musical”. We laughed and laughed and laughed.

The Mistborn series (trilogy +1)

Each book in this series deserves it’s own review, but I am compiling them here just to make it easier. So, read this post as you have the time 🙂 “The Final Empire” 8/10 (+1) After I read “Warbreaker” I was very intrigued to dig deeper into Sanderson’s work. My friend Mark again recommended, of […]

Warbreaker (2009)

8/10 (+1) In my year reading Brandon Sanderson, I started with one of his standalone novels, “Warbreaker”. Doing these “My Year With…” series is tough, I never quite know where to start. My friend Mark had this book and suggested it, so I took it, read it and was enthralled. The plot, as summarized by […]
