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.

Birds of Southern Africa - Ian Sinclair Not read straight through, but first skimmed, then relentlessly consulted to the point where everything has been read several times. Te best of the pocket birding guides (though, like Pocket Guide To Birds Of Southern Africa, it lacks taxonomic names). Includes clear photos, distribution maps, descriptions, habitat, status, voice, migration, breeding, and behavior notes.
