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 Story of India: An Epic Journey Across the Subcontinent - Michael Wood An engaging history of the subcontinent, emphasizing points of overlap, borrowing, and congruence between its cultures (as well as the inevitable conflicts). India is too broad a topic for one brief book, but Wood seems to have picked his areas of focus and events to examine well. I liked it enough to order a print copy and look up the BBC videos as well.
