This is an archive of my shorter book reviews and notes, which historically have been posted over at the 50 Book Challenge on LiveJournal, but which I’m starting to move over here. I’m posting them with altered date-stamps, but they might show up in my LiveJournal cross-post anyway. Bear with me, please.
Note: Many of these books also have full reviews available in the book review podcast (RSS).

This was originally conceived as the intro bit for a new videoblog on board games and card games, titled “Batteries not Required.” While I’d still love to do the show, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I don’t currently have the bandwidth in my life to do so.

I did this speech a couple of months ago, but only now have gotten around to editing and posting it. To be honest, I was more than a little embarassed by this one. Not only is it not very good, and badly rehearsed, but I’m sure my high school friend who periodically lives there and has devoted most of his professional life to studying Indonesian culture and history will laugh his head off at my inaccuracies and foolishness. For which I can only apologize and point out that, well, this was a researched speech, not a thesis. 😉
