In an incredibly unhelpful manner, I will be posting my reviews for books which are not new and which you have no interesting in reading. If you find yourself reading one of the books that ends up being listed here, please desist. And if you find yourself interested in reading something described, please immediately proceed to a drugstore and distract yourself with People magazine.

The day that I review People magazine, the world will be ending. Check here for updates!
