Book Hoarders Anonymous, Episode 5

No Sparkly Sexy Vampires

This episode focused on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith. We also ponder the reasons why the movie version of this month’s homework is enjoying limited success. Additionally, we discuss the latest version of the iOS Goodreads app, Harvard’s creation of a digital classical library, and Shannon’s not-quite-new (but hopefully very shiny) book blog.

One thought on “Book Hoarders Anonymous, Episode 5

  1. The only problem I see with the Passage by Justin Cronin is the face that you won’t be able to read the whole set of books until late in 2014 since the books are coming out every 2 years. Guess it will require alot of additional reading to occupy the rest of the time.
