June 5, 2014 | Tony | 15 Comments

About two years ago, my friend invited me to join him and several other people to watch the season premier of LogoTV’s show RuPaul’s Drag Race (heretofore referred to as RPDR for brevity). Many of us were unsure of what we were getting into, but […]

Morpheus Mondays: Dream Country & Seasons of Mist

March 24, 2014 | Tony | 9 Comments

Confession: I don’t read comics.  I love movies and TV shows based on comic books.  Give me all the Marvel and all the DC and all the Image–on my TV.  Although I have two volumes of The Walking Dead alongside a few of The Dark […]

February 14, 2014 | Tony | 4 Comments

November 14, 2013 | Tony | 7 Comments

I know some of you booksluttians out there are writers, and I know that quite a few of you are also NaNoWriMo participants. If you’re not familiar with NaNoWriMo (shortened from National Novel Writing Month), it’s a major effort by writers all over the world […]

Why I’m an Audiobookslut

August 17, 2013 | Tony | 27 Comments

As a reader, I’ve been a long time fan of audiobooks.  When my friend Eric first recommended Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series to me, he actually recommended the audiobooks instead of the paper books.  I read paper anyway, but later on, I was curious […]

The Evolution of an Insatiable Bookslut: Tony’s Tale

May 6, 2013 | Tony | 25 Comments

Unlike many booksluts, I was not a natural born reader.  I have no stories about teaching myself to read or learning to read before I started school.  But I had a lot of people in my life who read to me at a young age.  […]
