"A curious mix of the relevant and reverential"

For the love of books.

My friends David and wife Gi Gi, along with their kids, were snapped by the Winchester Book Gallery handing out free books to passersby. He explained on Facebook:


We gave away about 20 copies of Moneyball to people around town. The official reason was a worldwide effort to promote reading on Shakespeare's bday. But my friends and fam will tell you, I'm a notorious bookgiver anyway! Lots of smiles from strangers. Many thanks to the World Book Night organizers and Winchester Book Gallery. And to Lia for dragging me in, once again. We had a great time!


David has given me a number of books, so I can attest to his love for sharing the written word.  Aww, he's like a latter day Levar Burton, Reading Rainbow and all.


Did you celebrate World Book Night?

"... the awesomely gifted Alisha DeFreitas... tells her story of  her brush with the Culture of Death and her refusal to play the world’s game. I love that she gives two well-aimed upraised middle fingers: one to the abortion culture of the Left, and one to the Randian Makers vs. Takers class warriors of the Right. She’s one of my heros."

"While reading your blog I often sense a certain amount of conviction on your behalf, which makes me wonder why isn’t everyone reading the blogs of a woman who actually “gets it.”
