Stackable

No real post today, but I did update The Stack, since it is fairly unhelpful to have Patrick’s stack up still. For posterity, I’ll keep his up for a few months, but you can now spot MY stack right on top. It is very shiny, complete with all four books I’m currently reading (I never [...]

So Many Events!

So Many Events!

I am looking forward to both my events this Saturday: Cressida Cowell’s How To Train Your Dragon at 11:30, and Danielle Trussoni’s Angelology at 4. How to Train Your Dragon sounds like it would have been right up my alley about 10 years ago, and Angelology is selling quite well and getting good reviews. However, [...]

Guest Post: My Fifteen Minutes Start Now

Guest Post: My Fifteen Minutes Start Now

By John Vorhaus When I was a kid, I wanted to be big in the world. I didn’t know what that meant exactly, but it conjured up pictures in my mind of me wearing sunglasses, looking quite cool and feeling like a made guy, whatever the heck that was. As I grew older, as one [...]

I Remember Those…

I Remember Those…

Exciting news! John Vorhaus, author of California Roll, will be writing a blog post for Vroman’s this week (check back tomorrow or Wednesday). If that post makes you go “Oooo, that guy sounds awesome!” you should stop by at 7pm this Thursday to meet him, or, for a more in-depth experience, sign up for the [...]

Eating Animals 5: The Final Chapter

Eating Animals 5: The Final Chapter

Sorry this is a day late… I blame a delicious indian/vegetarian food induced coma. Extra thanks to Paru’s for accommodating such a large crowd (mainly by cramming us into a booth probably meant for about 6, not 10). No matter the limited space, though; I think it ended up making for better discussion, and provided [...]

Eating Animals 4: Dinner with J. S. Foer!

Eating Animals 4: Dinner with J. S. Foer!

Since Vroman’s Bookstore won the “Say No to Factory Farming” challenge in honor of Jonathan Safran Foer’s new book, Eating Animals, several of us from Vroman’s get to have dinner with the author! Patrick, who some of you may remember as the webmaster from the distant, distant past (about two weeks ago) will be there, [...]

I Wish I Didn’t Have to Sleep (Kind of)

I Wish I Didn’t Have to Sleep (Kind of)

I know I’m supposedly reading the Wheel of Time (and I am, I promise!) but a year straight of epic fantasy is sometimes just a little too epic for me. So I’ve been taking breaks, mainly to re-read other things that I know are specifically not epic fantasy. However, I picked up The Boy Who [...]

Best Bookstore… Ever? Also Acedia and Flow

Best Bookstore… Ever? Also Acedia and Flow

Well, Kathleen Norris (bestselling author of Amazing Grace, Cloister Walk, and the new Acedia & Me) thinks so. She said that this is possibly the best bookstore in the nation. Her words, not mine (although I, of course, am in total agreement!). She had some very interesting things to say about acedia tonight, (acedia is [...]

Playhouse Positives

Playhouse Positives

I’m still working on fully switching into Webmaster/Blogger mode (and still handling my old workload until we hire a new me in the Promo department), and therefore I’ve been formatting e-mails all day rather than composing delectable blog posts. However: I am determined to blog weekly, no matter what I’m doing. Ideally every day once [...]

Blogger’s Paradise

Blogger’s Paradise

I have stepped into the blogger’s dream. The site is set up and ready to go, there is already (plenty) of awesome content, there is even an extensive blog roll of lovely sites to peruse (see right). Heck, I even have some of those most elusive of creatures: readers. Of course, I have to keep [...]
