A "Great" Read

Oh god, I totally made that pun, didn't I? Sorry about that.

Look, here's a video full of jump cuts and lots of unnecessary piss-poor special effects to make up for it!




And in case you missed it, here's the trailer for the latest film incarnation of The Great Gatsby.

It's bigger because it's way better than the video I made.

Please tell me things about The Great Gatsby that I should be aware of, but remember that people who engage in the act of spilling spoilers will be hung from the ceiling by their fingernails. (Yes, I will be watching the Crash Course videos on the subject. Don't rush me, okay?!)

One Hundred Great Books In Haiku - The Wrap Up


So here we are: all read, for the third time. It's been quite the journey getting to this point (I lost the book twice, and had to re-purchase it on the second occasion), and I can't help but feel like there is only one way to sum up my experience of reading this book.

Puns, snark and Greenpeace,
From Homer to Hemingway.
In short: just perfect.

*****

There will be a new video soon. I promise. I have a lot riding on how quickly I read the next book, hence I am anxious to get stuck in, so for once my word on this subject is totally solid.

And then... BAM! HAIKU!



Yes, it's been a long time. Yes, I end up saying that too much. Yes, I should have edited this instead of just posting the raw footage. Yes, there is way too much cleavage. Yes, the video was a week and a half old before I posted it. Yes, my teeth are awful.

None of that matters, okay? I have put up a video and there is a new book and the review is already written and ready to go so STOP JUDGING ME, OKAY?

I love you. x
