In this podcast Scott Yarbrough and Kirk Curnutt examine totemic works such as Herman Melville's Moby-Dick and Toni Morrison's Beloved that have been labeled GANs, exploring their th ...

The Read.Write.Repeat podcast was born from obsession. In its basic form, it is an obsession with storytelling. To our loved ones, it is just that, a strange quirk, nothing more. For us, it has evolved into a driving thirst that results in grandiose projects, strange discoveries, wild dreams, and the occasional hastily erected shrine. Come along as we impulsively pursue all manner of literary ecstasies and plan elaborate escapades and forays into all things reading, writing, and publishing. ...

“A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts,” is one of the quotes from James Allen's classic self help books, As a Man Thinketh. Published in 1902, it provides many more such insightful concepts on the power of thought and its effect on a human being's personality and behavior. This volume is more of a literary essay than a complete book and its title is based on a Biblical proverb, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Taking this piec ...
