“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.”-Margaret Fuller.
The mortarboard and robe have been returned , the sense of completing an immense life milestone is still settling in. An avid reader all my life I have acquired throughout my short years a vast amount of books from all parts of the world and discussing different parts of life, love and the pursuit of happiness in all regards. Not to long ago it was suggested that I take my passion for literature to writing reviews about the books I read and then even furthered that I begin a site dedicated to sharing the reviews of those pieces of art to others, a kind of highbred between a columnist and a book reviewer type of scenario. So as I read the classics of yesteryear and the soon to be classics that are being published now, I encourage you to take some time open a book and relax from the stresses of the day whether you are out making the world a better place one person at a time, inspiring others to be leaders, making people laugh, lending your ear to be a soundboard to someone , or just smiling for the sake of showing your inner beauty, pick up a book and let your mind wonder and hopefully some of these reviews will lead you to explore/experience other facets of the world or life that never crossed your mind before.

Sarcasm run amok in this collection of misconstrued “Dear ________” letters answered by leading comedic identities, peppered with mundane questions and irrelevant answers this is a lighthearted read that is a beach bound. Filled with stagnant humor and one too many tongue-in-cheek jokes this edition to the Believer magazines repertoire of books lacks the pizzazz the first one had; this collection did not seem to have the zip or order to the letters that the previous book had. Maybe the Believer should just believe in the publication of magazines for the next couple of months and really put effort into the publication of their third book.
