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.

Theories of Everything: Selected, Collected, and Health-Inspected Cartoons, 1978-2006 - Roz Chast, David Remnick Roz Chast is consistently funny in an enjoyably bent way. Few other cartoonists make me laugh aloud, alone, in the middle of the night. This is a nice, big, chunky retrospective that will use up a certain amount of your otherwise productive time. Too big to read in the tub or to hide in a professional journal at work.
