“The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds lasts. Monuments fall; nations perish; civilizations grow old and die out; and, after an era of darkness, new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again, and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men’s hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead.”

-Clarence S. Day

Nothing In Particular is a book review blog by Renwick Berchild. An avid reader all her life, Renwick has read over a thousand books on a multitude of subjects; from Galileo Galilei’s Dialogue Concerning The Two Chief World Systems, to Jeff Smith’s famous graphic novel series Bone, nothing is off limits.

At Nothing In Particular, reviews never contain spoilers. Genres range from children’s chapbooks to tabletop reads to historical 1,000 page doorstops. Books both classic and unheard-of, loved and reviled, old and new all show up here. Don’t expect a logical order, as the appetites of the reviewer are fluctuative and sometimes veer off in weird directions.

Comments and discussion are welcome here, as are suggested reads. Keep in mind this blog is a one-woman show – unfortunately, ya can’t read everything.

Happy reading to all.
