Moonlight before my bed;
Perhaps frost on the ground;
Lift my head and see the moon;
Lower my head and pine for home.*

'Tis the season for chilling and creepy, ghostly and ghoulish, gory and grisly. This makes it the perfect time to read Carmilla!

Some of the stories cemented my admiration for media superstars in perpetuity. International correspondent and legend Christiane Amanpour, that shout-out is for you.

Author Bobby Hall, a.k.a. Logic, is one of my niece Abby's favorite artists and she recommended I read this book. So I did! My brief summary of the book is that the main character, a twenty-something man named Flynn, works at a grocery store. On a surface level, libraries and grocery stores are very similar. They have lots of stuff organized in specific ways and many people coming and going, using the space in a variety of ways. I was thinking about this as I was reading the novel. I was also thinking about the fact that Abby works in a grocery store, too.
