Book Review #2

Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness (Scott Pilgrim, #3)Scott Pilgrim and the Infinite Sadness by Bryan Lee O'Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What 'Preciously Little Life' had in novelty, and where 'vs. the World' seemed to drag with trying to move the plot and establishing background, 'Infinite Sadness' craftily combines. The story effortlessly moves between drama and comedy, with ingenuity and nerdiness peppered along the way.

Book Review #1

Our Thoughts Determine Our Lives:  The Life and Teachings of Elder Thaddeus of VitovnicaOur Thoughts Determine Our Lives:  The Life and Teachings of Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica by Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of the most, if not the most, spiritually beneficial books I have ever read. Elder Thaddeus approaches the indulgence of sin from a seemingly unique and yet patristic angle, giving advice that is burning with love and exemplary of the meekness and kindness espoused by Our Lord.

The only negative aspect of this book was that it was virtually just a  collexion of quotes (though some were quite long), and this sometimes made it hard to read the book straight through. On the other hand, this configuration could in fact be spiritually beneficial, as it forces the reader (and gives them the ability) to stop and consider each individual quote.

I feel like I should begin actually blogging again, but to be honest, I don't know if I have much of anything to actually write about. Ah, crisis of the twenty-first century! I suppose that all of my time on Twitter has somehow destroyed my capability to communicate in anything past 140 characters, but maybe it's about time that I try.  Then again, though, I probably have nothing interesting to add to the world, and my weblog becomes part of the milliard of bytes in digital clutter that are clogging up the tubes of the Internet.

Oh well, I suppose. Here's to effort!
