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 Fire Cat - Esther Averill I received a copy from a friend to whom I'd mentioned that I adored Esther Averill's cat books as a child. Next year maybe I can score a copy of Jenny and the Cat Club: A Collection of Favorite Stories about Jenny Linsky. Averill's early reader tells the story of Pickles, an aggressive, maculate yellow cat. Given a chance to be a firehouse cat, Pickles realizes that he must become a source of succor.
