How Reading Fast Slows You Down

“It is not just about being well-read, it is about reading well” Writing a book and literary blog has me thinking if I will have time to read all the books I want. I know I still can but it requires enough time management to pull off. How will I ever balance the time I … Continue reading How Reading Fast Slows You Down

UPDATE: Tin Man Takes Turing Test: May Have A Heart

UPDATE (June 29, 2016): The results are in as June 27 and the machines won (at least in my case).

Batman: The Ideal Hero – Childhood Love #1

Kicking things off on a fun note, I thought I'd start with a fan favorite of mine. Growing up with Batman was like having a second dad for me, but he sounded nothing like him.
