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.

Understanding Everyday Setswana: A Vocabulary and Reference Book: Tlotlofoko Le Kumako Buka - Pam Wilken This appears to be geared to English-speaking South Africans. There are some puzzling vocabulary choices and omissions, and no grammar notes at all, which was surprising. There's very little vocabulary that reflects the practices (for example, foods or aspects of village life) of Batswana. However, it's functionally the only somewhat easily accessible Setswana guide.
