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 Passport: The History of Man's Most Travelled Document - Martin Lloyd A natural history of the passport. Some readers find it dry, whereas I found it very interesting. Illustrated with useful photographs and interweaving history and anecdote. It's a little dated since it was published before many of the post-9/11 infelicities of cross-border travel were firmly entrenched.
