Maybe I just memorized what a bunch of words look like. I do like to read. No... I think it's fair to say I … Continue reading Can You Teach Me to Read?

20 Years with Harry Potter

This morning, I was perusing the old Twitter feed and came across this tweet from J.K. Rowling... 20 years ago? How can that be? I guess it makes sense. I graduated from Hogwarts high school 20 years ago. And according to J.K.'s timeline, the Battle of Hogwarts happened in 1998. Harry Potter and I are … Continue reading 20 Years with Harry Potter

Why I’m Over Television

I'm a TV kind of guy. I like it. Having a screen that presents me with hours of endless entertainment is kind of nice. But... lately... I don't know. I'm just... kind of... over the whole thing.

A Dater’s Guide to Disney Princesses: Belle

Beauty and the Beast is definitely my favorite of these Disney animated films. In fact, it's a lot of people's favorite. It's so cherished, in fact, that it's being remade as a live action movie starring Hermione Granger Emma Watson as Belle. Now, this isn't the same as the classic Beauty and the Beast tale … Continue reading A Dater’s Guide to Disney Princesses: Belle

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Title: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Author: Washington Irving Published: 1820 This is a story I've heard and seen in probably a dozen different versions but never actually read. It's a classic and it's really not long at all. So when I looked for a free ebook that I could knock out pretty quickly, I … Continue reading The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
