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.

Is It Still Cheating if I Don't Get Caught? - Bruce Weinstein, Harriet Russell This is a life ethics book for teens. The principles are those articulated in his Life Principles: Feeling Good by Doing Good, with some simplified language and examples more relevant to young readers. This book could serve as the basis for a psychoeducational group or be incorporated into lesson planning for youth who have had poor adult role models or been in disciplinary or legal trouble. This would require more discussion about why a person would choose to act morally rather than amorally or immorally, which would be an interesting extension of the text and ensure that it was not used in a "Just Say No" parroting sort of way.
