A tour of Cambridge’s bookshops

During the pandemic, a lot of us had no choice but to switch to shopping for books online. While this was quick, safe and convenient, I know I won’t be the only person who missed shopping for books in-person. There’s something inimitable about the experience of perusing real shelves and holding books in your hands. […]

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – A Review

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse.
