Cult and Porn Book Reviews (with links)

Before the blog was retitled "Mostly Shakespeare," it was called something like "Michael Doherty's Personal Library," and was basically reviews of books that don't normally get reviewed - namely adult erotic books and crazy cult books.

Shakespeare Study

In 2010, I started reading the complete works of Williams Shakespeare. The idea started off simply enough, to read one play a month. Then I learned that the BBC had produced film versions of all thirty-seven plays, so I watched those as I went along. I started watching other film versions as well, and reading books of essays on each play. This blog didn't begin until I was well into my study. But here is a list of my blog entries related specifically to the study, along with links.
