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.

Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide - Peter Allison Botswana. An enjoyable account of being a safari guide in Botswana. This is a series of anecdotes, and not particularly a psychological narrative--that is, there is no particular moral or developmental outcome. I enjoyed it for the descriptions of animal and tourist behavior. I'll still read something by Bessie Head to get a better sense of the people of Botswana.
