Grab a Thesaurus...

Namaste.
(No, seriously; I'm Indian)

            Welcome to "One Too Many Adjectives," my brand-new book blog for every logophile out there who's dying in the world of 140-characters, and confusing texting acronyms (If it ever gets too bad, just remember that you are not alone).
           In hopes of providing some relief to ailing bibliophiles, and logophiles alike; on this blog, I'm going to be doing book reviews of new releases as well as classics, Word of the Day posts, Quote of the Day posts, and more, all piled on with an ample amount of adjectives, because, let's face it, longer sentences are just more interesting to read. So, yes, the title of this blog is, indeed, an ironic statement (you can never have too many adjectives if you use them right!).

To prove my point, this is my favorite sentence ever. It was written by Charles Dickens back in 1859, in his book A Tale of Two Cities, about the peasants who stormed the Bastille:
The sea of black and threatening waters, and of destructive upheaving of wave against wave, whose depths were yet unfathomed and whose forces were yet unknown. The remorseless sea of turbulently swaying shapes, voices of vengeance, and faces hardened in the furnaces of suffering until the touch of pity could make no mark on them. 
 I can almost see the sea of tired serfs storming an even more tired building!

Anyway, I'm really hoping to share this blog with many others who enjoy all-things related to the written word. Thanks for reading :)

More coming soon!
