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 Pattern in the Carpet: A Personal History with Jigsaws - Margaret Drabble A somewhat rambling, somewhat structured memoir/history of the jigsaw puzzle. I see the intent but it didn't work quite as well as I hoped. While I enjoyed reading it, it was also a slow read and I'm not sure why.
