I read widely and in most genres but romance and westerns. Here you'll find my reviews since 2007, with a few reviews of previously read books as well.


In 2012, I completed an "authors of the world" challenge, reading a book for every country (and a few other entities) by someone who'd lived there for at least two years. I expect to tag these books by challenge and country in the near future. I'm still refining my list by adding books that better meet my challenge criteria.

The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice - Christopher Hitchens I don't have good ways to evaluate the claims here independently, but this has the flavor of 2/3 useful and 1/6 picayune, and 1/6 churlish. I found it helpful in its elaboration of Mother Teresa's stated positions and goals (which I could verify elsewhere), which aren't what most people seem to think they were.
