Be the change you want to see.

I think it was Ghandi who said this. Stephen Covey said it when he advised people to be proactive as a highly successful habit of thinking. So, I am here to be the change that I want to see in the world: men who read, talk about reading, and be just as proud of what's on our bookshelves as the length of our drives down the fairway.

I will review new (and sometimes not so new but NEWsworthy) books and tell you why I liked them. I am not here only to encourage men to read (that would be nice) but to also be a common guy telling you what he reads and why you might like to, too.


  1. john,
    i am taken by your blog intent & posted on my fb wall. i was with my husband at an appointment with his male doctor. reading aimee bender's the peculiar sadness of lemon cake, i mentioned it to the doc. his response: he jotted down the author & title for his book club. i was impressed that he belonged to one.

  2. Thanks, Chella. I hope that we can get more readers out of the closet and into waiting rooms every where. :)
