Wide array

This book was such a good read!  Read Hard is a collection of essays published in The Believer.  The eassays cover a wide range of subjects from public aquariums to Charles Dickens to self-help books on writing to Paul Anka to a trans gender music festival.  I didn't read every essay (music criticism is a bit of a yawn to me) but I read a great deal of them - many above average on the interesting scale and a handful that were fucking awesome.  I think I need to finally send in for a subscription to the magazine.  8/10.
