Eric, or, Little by Little

by Frederic William Farrar

An excellent and easy read. Really. I was very surprised how I felt for Eric. It is a story of a boy gone bad by the 'little' things in life. Hence the title. A great cathartic journey of a teen through the vices of drinking, smoking, and worse as told through Victorian eyes. The message of choices and charater are the same today. It is about suffering, faith, and redemption. Even though I'm moving in the direction of being an atheist, I found the moral narrative soulful and reflective of my own life. I'm putting together a list of a few select books to suggest to my son when he transitions into his teens. This will be on the list.

Author of the Day

Graceley Knox & D.D. Miers
USA Today bestselling authors, Graceley Knox and D.D. Miers may be long-lost sisters, but their moms continue to deny it. They are most definitely the co-writers of the Kresova Vampire Harem series, as well as a multitude of other upcoming projects they can't wait to share with readers. Together they tend to share the same brain, finish each other's thoughts, laugh way too hard at inappropriate comments, drink enough coffee to qualify for an intervention, and talk about their fur babies. As our Authors ot the Day, they talk about their latest book, Girl Bitten, reveal what it takes to co-write books, explain what they do with new ideas and much more.
