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 Autobiography of Black Hawk - Black Hawk Audiobook from Audible. Black Hawk's story of duplicity by the US. While I assume he is disposed toward his own positive account of himself, he also acknowledges his errors at many points. Given the execrable conduct of the US government in its dealings with native people, I'll presume a reasonable degree of accuracy. Black Hawk is clear and even-handed, and I enjoyed reading this despite the sorrow provoked by its content.
