Quiet by Susan Cain

     I didn’t want to like Quiet.     I know, right? To be fair, people had been wildly misinterpreting the book. Or maybe not. For some reason, I felt that my conversations with anyone who'd recently read Quiet always went like this:     “Introverts are thinkers,” they’d say to me, adjusting their scarves. “Extroverts are nice.. but introverts…are demigods. Our eardrums physically…See More

"Great post Annie!! Death is something that is way too sudden, even if you've been warned of it for months in advance (like if someone you know has a fatal illness of some sort). But I guess it's part or that weird cycle of life. The idea…"

"The only good time-travel book I can recall reading is A Wrinkle In Time. That's barely science fiction, though. Fab post! "

Annie Zheng replied to Ben Norys's discussion books nobody cares about
"I enjoy most of the books we're assigned for English, actually. The only exception, I think, is A Tale Of Two Cities. Also, Shakespeare is usually a hit or miss. "

"Books that claim to "make you laugh and make you cry" rarely do so, but this one actually made true on the promise. Hilarious, and also incredibly sad. "

Reading for the Soul

"I've never been able to get into movies 100%. It seems that in movies, you are looking from the outside in-- all you can do is watch your protagonist work. In books, you are in their skin, thinking their thoughts and feeling their…"

The Big D

As advice on what to write our next blog posts about, Mr. Anderson offered us this tidbit: write about what’s been on your mind lately.

So, what’s been on my mind lately? School, of course, and the always-formidable future, and why American health care is so expensive, and why people say time is a man-made construct, (seriously, if someone could explain it to me, that’d be great), and the fact that the new Harry Potter movie is coming out next year, and death. Death! I’ll write…


Wait, You Haven't Read TFiOS Until Now?

Recently, I finally took the initiative to, you know, actually borrow a copy of The Fault in Our Stars. It’s shamefully late, I know—I’m literally the last person I know to read it. To be honest, my hopes weren’t very high anyways—I’m not a stranger to John Green’s work. I think I’ve read all his other books besides The Fault in Our Stars, actually. That being said, I’m not a huge fan either, for reasons I’ve discussed before on a few Ning comment threads; his characters…


On B.J. Novak's One More Thing

Posted on March 31, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

As a fan of "The Office," I eagerly read Mindy Kaling’s autobiography when it came out (Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?), and when B.J. Novak released a new book, I put it on the top of my reading list as well. This one, however, isn’t an autobiography—it’s a collection of 64 smart, witty vignettes, at turns funny and self-reflective, and always a tad ludicrous. Nearly every story has some sort of twist, or at least an element of tongue-in-cheekiness. A blind date goes awry when…
