Re: “Community Bookmaking Workshop at BAM

Bookmakers don't "[cheat] gamblers out of their money"--they set odds. It's a mathematical concept. So learn what words mean before you attempt silly wordplay ...

Re: “A Million Steps: Kurt's 500-Mile Journey on the Camino de Santiago

I started your journey 3 days ago in your words, not your steps. I'm 56yrs. old, depressed, struggling each day just to get out of bed. Reading about your walk is waking my soul a day at a time. I go for infusion treatments once a month for Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am also a lesbian Christian & my supposed church of the past 8 years have compared me to murderers! I'm LOST.

Re: “Backstabbing Bitches is Breathtakingly Bad

Wow Josh! I am flattered you reviewed my book. May I add the first book I have ever written in my entire life that I am so proud of. Yes, Josh. It was a dream come true! Writing my very own book. It would make sense to use real life situations (fake people of course) because who else can tell those stories better than I. The editor I hired to review my book would be so pleased to know you took the time to pick apart the punctuation. I read nutrition labels all the time Josh, Don't you know how important they are! Oh, silly me I am using too many exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There Josh, bash it, pick it apart & service it up for supper!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “Precious by Kelly Broich is Deliciously Bizarre

I just ripped through the Kindle version and found it perfectly balanced. You just need to be able to comprehend the satrical complexity of the themes that drive the story. I'm sure it will be superficially analyzed by many because there is really nothing like it. It's hard to compare. I think this novel could be STUDIED. I agree, though, Broich creates a weird, fun world. I hope he creates more. This guy is a hell of a good writer.

Re: “A Natural Born Citizen

It's absurd because there are so many morons who cannot see that the online birth certificate is a total fake--in about 15 different ways. I give up on you dummies!

Yup, 10 a.m.-noon at the Fred Meyer on Fairview Avenue in Meridian (it's in the info box on the right under the photo—the ads kind of hide it.)

Re: “Idaho Book Extravaganza

I would like to know of all book fairs in Idaho. I am a published author in Rupert, Idaho and I am limited to marketing in the area. I wish I had known about the Boise extravaganza.

Re: “Yeah No Totally Soars Like a Lead Balloon

Yeah. No. It took me more than a week to stop my children from saying this assinine phrase. If you say it to me in any context you will be totally and completely ignored. Just as this book should be. And no, I didn't read it. I used the pages to line the bottom of the bird cage and wrap fish for the trash. Just sayin.......

Re: “The Hours Are More Precious Than You Know

I appreciate James Ady's engaging review of These Precious Hours, but there is one mistake that could be a typo. The first of 13 stories has the same title as the book, "These Precious Hours", not "These Seven Hours." I also appreciate that Mr. Ady included the grief memoir, A Year and a Day, which is a non fiction treatment of the same theme, loss and recovery. Both are available through Kindle. With so many books published these days, it is difficult to get a review.

Thanks again,

Michael Corrigan

Re: “Death in the Sticks

Patrick McManus is a humorist, but his step into writing a mystery novel is a big stride. While the book is a good read as a mystery novel, Patrick weaves subtle humor throughout the mystery and adventure. If you have never read a Patrick McManus book, you will still enjoy "The Blight Way". Warning: Once you read a Patrick McManus book you will want to read another, and another, and another. If "The Blight Way" is a stand alone novel, so be it. If it is the beginning of a series, great! Patrick McManus is as good as they come when writing humor.

Re: “Death in the Sticks

Patrick McManus may be a humorist, but his step into a mystery novel is a big stride. While subtle humor is sprinkled throughout, there is a good weave of mystery and adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommend it to all Patrick McManus readers. If you have never read a McManus book, you will still get a kick out of this story. Once you read a McManus book you will want to read another, and another, and another. Thank you Patrick for your sustained effort required to write a mystery novel.
