A Man With An Agenda

I'm an indie bookseller in Vermont, sometime public servant, and voracious reader. My public commitments have not kept me from weekly D&D sessions or thinking about getting more cats and ways of keeping said cats off my antiques.

 

Catching up on half a year of not reviewing, please pardon my flurry of updates. Hoping to get this blog current by the end of summer so that my currently reading and shelves reflect my actual state of Read.
