It’s Ron Charles!

Okay, so for those of you who don’t know (and you should), Ron Charles is a fiction book reviewer for the Washington Post. But he is ALSO your Totally Hip Book Reviewer, helpfully swooping in to save you from the dastardly deeds of those books that would seek to bore you/irritate you/cause you to worry about the current state of the literary world. Well, okay, not exactly. Basically he tells you about ones that don’t do that, as well as just generally making fun of other literary happenings, which he excels at. Here’s his first video, I hope you like it!

Normally, this would be the end of a post, but I’ve been thinking of adding in something new: A Literary Quote of the Day. At the end of every post, I’ll add in a quote from a book, author, poem, or some such thing that I find particularly humorous, heartbreaking, or just plain cool. And, if you have a quote you’d like to suggest, just leave it in the comments and I’ll put it in. But absolutely no spoilers, because they’re ungodly if unbidden. So, anyway, because this book has so many awesome quotes, the first ever Literary Quote of the Day is: “My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.” –John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.

P.S. You can probably expect at least a couple more quotes from that book in the future. Because, you know, it’s awesome. Have a good Friday! (Because it’s Thursday night, and “Have a good day” would be pretty pointless.)
