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.

Cutting Toddy in Kiribati - Tebuai Uaai,  Buatia Kauea Kiribati. A basic low-level reader, made more interesting b the fact that it's from Kiribati and about toddy production. If you're not from a community that collects and ferments palm sap, this is a good illustration of how inexplicable even an easy reader can be when it's culturally incongruous.
