I Read It Because Patrick Said So…

My favorite local indie bookstore, Mysterious Galaxy used to have a curmudgeonly gem roaming the aisles of its ever so delightful store. He goes by the name of Patrick, or Mr. H, or Fearless Leader to his many bookish minions.

Not only is he a wonderfully quixotic pusher of books, Mr. H has an uncanny knack for honing in on books that will be oh-so-popular (or should be) among readers of that given genre. Sometimes when the mood strikes but I don’t know what I want to read, I simply do as I’m told (a rarity I assure you) and hope for the best. A book bought at Patrick’s prodding has yet to go unfinished or unenjoyed. I feel it’s only fair to pass on the recommendations. Stay tuned for reviews of the many, many Mr. H instigated additions to my reading pile…
