From 2013 to 2020 I bought "Sparco" brand packing tape, which was thick, superclear, unrolled easily, and whose abundant glue had a pleasant fruity odor. I don't remember why I then switched to Amazon's most popular bran…

For us it's been a crapshoot (an Americanism for luck/chance, per the Collins dictionary, which I newly love after learning that it includes my favorite British English neologism, "bog-standard"). Lovely spouse had no re…

For most of my twenty-five years in-house, I was a managing or production editor (mostly called the former, and more rarely the latter, here in the US) for trade fiction/nonfiction books. This is not being an acquisit…

It's bothered me for YEARS that I've lost track of this book! Every several months I search Google and Goodreads by keyword, with no luck. BX will save my sanity, I know. It's relatively literary sf with a vague, kind…

I use cloth towels for drying anything wet yet clean. But most people use them for mopping up anything in the kitchen. Yet what doesn't get mopped then gets spread around. In our home that means crusty yogurt on the f…

Turn your home into a store. In western Massachusetts, in the town of the Mass MoCA museum, Grover Askins's bookstore is one of his two units at the Eclipse Mill artists' residential coop. Not inexpensive, but well worth…

Hi too, annulla! Had you still been going to the BX Meetups in Manhattan, before March? I drifted away after moving back to Brooklyn. Hope you've been safe and healthy. NYC business and entertainment districts are sti…

Here in NYC, made-out-of-sheet-metal free-newspaper vending machines, and their more abstract and smaller molded-plastic equivalents that offer small-format free magazines or catalogs, are my favorite spaces for wild rel…

There will be much more duck fat in my future, as I practice making crispy-skinned breasts as inspired by tips such as at https://www.seriouseats.com/2018/02/for-perfect-duck-breast-get-in-the-zone.html . Thanks, Cov…

A few chilly nights ago, Mark Bittman's stovetop "Cassoulet with Lots of Vegetables" seemed worth a try. With canned beans and fresh duck breast, and our omitting the fatty confit, plus no bready layering, the recipe cla…

I've gotten my first two in the last couple of days for the first time since mid-November of last year. I'm thrilled and grateful. About time I ordered myself some wings. . . .

" LFLs are a highly visible form of self-gratification cleverly disguised as book aid. . . . We argue that taking a landscape analysis approach to the LFL phenomenon makes clearer the stakes of its role in broader discus…

In 2005 I found a US dollar bill stamped WheresGeorge.com. But it wasn't exciting enough for me to tag and release anything myself. Meanwhile, since I worked in publishing, I was donating surplus books to libraries, a…

I'm not interested in any gaming. And I get enough addictive pleasure by tagging and releasing for BookCrossing, and by taking photos of ships for MarineTraffic.com's crowdsourced database/community, and (most recently) …

My weaving-and-sewing-sculptures artist spouse is eager to get a relatively inexpensive (< US$600) embroidering machine. There seem to be so many BookCrossers who love fiber that I thought I'd ask here for any advice! …
