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.

Popol Vuh: The Sacred Book of the Maya: The Great Classic of Central American Spirituality, Translated from the Original Maya Text - Anonymous, Allen J. Christenson Guatemala. An engrossing religious and historical document, well-contextualized and commented upon by Christenson. Lots of linguistic and explanatory notes, as well as anthropological material. I confess to skimming the lists at the end, but I got the gist. People are almost Soylent Green, in that they were created from maize.
