New Old Blog

After a wonderful suggestion from my husband, I have re-imagined my old blog, Hey Look! Books!, into a project that I will most likely find a lot more interesting than just basic book reviews. My first post, concerning the nauseating sentimentality of Longfellow's "The Children's Hour," is now up. Check it out if you really hate/love classic literature. That site will be undergoing some cosmetic changes as well over the next few days, so if things go wonky, let me know in the comments somewhere and I'll try to fix it.
