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.

Whales on Stilts - M.T. Anderson Cute. With discursive asides reminiscent of Lemony Snicket and a wealth of absurd details, this is a lighthearted send-up of serial youth adventure/detective novels. It's a quick read, fun, and requires little reflection. Book candy, which occasional eruptions of melancholic disquisition. Enjoy.
