Judy Blume's intro wasn't nearly as good as last year's by Sufijan Stevens. Oh well. There were several stories I did emjoy -- but I wasn't as overwhelmed with each story as I was with 2007. There was even a story I skipped. Gasp!

If not quite as consistent as the 2007 volume, Eggers and his kids have put together another solid, if not quite indispensable, collection of fiction and nonfiction that is especially appealing if you like your leisure reading in short, compelling bursts.

Fuck it. I'm giving up on this one.
I made it halfway through, then put it down about a month ago. And can't really find it in me to pick it back up.

For some strange reason, my Dave Eggars/McSweeney's aversion doesn't apply to the B.A. Non-Required Reading series.
Even its low points and its (often) mis-guided attempts at being "clever" or "witty" or "look at me!" can usually be forgiven.
