|Read All Over celebrates the bookworm in all of us, showcasing readers in Vancouver and the books they love most.
Tyler is, among other things, a student who likes using the ideas of (mostly) dead theorists to talk about the Internet. He is also a writer of many things, such as songs, editorials, cultural commentary, and bad jokes. After being told recently that, because of the Web, people don’t really read things anymore, he gave up on his dream of creating a masterwork of political and cultural theory, and has since settled for sassy tweets about bad first dates.
What book makes you feel like a kid again?
What books have changed your life?
The one book you always recommend is…
How do you like your books served up best – audio books, graphic novels, used paperbacks, library loaner, e-reader…
Classic stylez- I love a hard cover with a fresh spine.
Your life story is published tomorrow. What’s the title?
Ride ’em, Comrade: The kind of true story of one man’s journey through folk music, Marxism, and Manhattans.
Librarian vs. English Professor – who is sexier?
Tough call. Based on my long-standing crush on a former instructor, I’m inclined to go with English Professor. But I recently saw a whole bunch of way foxy librarians do burlesque, and now I don’t know what’s what.
Where is your favorite place to crack open a good book in Vancouver?
Either at Bump & Grind on the Drive with coffee at hand, Guilt & Company (before it gets rowdy and Jenga-ey) with a Manhattan at hand, or lying on my friend Amanda’s living room floor.
