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.

Banana: The Fate of the Fruit That Changed the World - Dan Koeppel Much better written than Chapman's Bananas: How the United Fruit Company Shaped the World. The story includes the same indictments as Chapman's, but is better-told, though sometimes in less depth. There is more about bananas here, and less about governments. Read both to consolidate your knowledge.
