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.

Every Patient Tells A Story: Medical Mysteries and the Art of Diagnosis (Audio) - Lisa Sanders Sanders blends exposition with clinical and personal stories to create a satisfying blend in the medical case studies/medical practices genre. I appreciated the vulnerability of the medical practitioners who discussed their diagnostic errors and confusion. A good companion to Gawande's Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance.
