Irregular’s Intel – I Have A Plan!

It’s no secret that I am a reader… so much so that my license plate says it! Now, 2017 was a busy year for me and I did not read much, AT ALL. As a matter of fact, it is probably my lowest year since… I don’t know… before I could read? Yeah, I’m not proud of it… as a matter of fact, I left a couple of unfinished books back there, too. But, that is ok because I am going to turn this ship around! How? Well, like the title says… I HAVE A PLAN!  Continue reading Irregular’s Intel – I Have A Plan!

She Geek Critique – Bam! Pow! Splat!

Whether you’re a fan of the tv shows, the movies or the comic books themselves, you know about the decades-long rivalry between Marvel and DC.

The movie Atomic Blonde is based on this book. But before picking it up I faced a dilemma: do I read it before I see the movie or after?  Continue reading Irregular’s Intel – Before or After?

She Geek Critique – Always Be Reading

I don’t typically talk about what I do “for a living”, but I’m an editor. Yes, that means I get paid to read and be the grammar police, among other things (it’s for a marketing department and nowhere near as glamorous as it sounds!). And even though I don’t take my work home with me, I do actually enjoy doing the editor/proofer thing in my free time as well.  Continue reading She Geek Critique – Always Be Reading
