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.

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking - Susan Cain Very readable and interesting, though sometimes repetitive and sometimes overgeneralized. I read this as an audiobook and might have found it more compelling with the opportunity to look up the studies the author references. Probably a useful popular text for teaching management and pedagogy classes; at the least, a good stimulus for reflection or discussion.
