These 15 Books Need You

a.k.a. “Playing catch up with the stacks [6].”

In this series I share with you a stack of my recently acquired and most anticipated reading materials. The last time I did one was back in March. In 2012 I did one in NovemberAugust, and March, and in 2011 I did one in May.

This time, I figured I would review them, taking as my formal inspiration Julia Cohen & Mathias Svalina’s short-lived but totally rad Home Video Review of Books.

Now then…
