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 Book of Genesis - Robert Crumb Through his illustrations, Crumb draws attention to parts of Genesis we might otherwise elide over or interpret differently. The amount of pagan worship apparently engaged in by our protagonists is highlights by, for example, the number of times oil is poured over just-erected standing stones. The visual approach showcases the weirdness of some of the stories, and the dual narrative structure of Genesis as well.
