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.

An Ordinary Man: An Autobiography - Paul Rusesabagina, Tom Zoellner Rwanda. Rusesabagina is the "Hotel Rwanda" man, and this is his account of his life and role in protecting people from the genocide. Rusesabagina describes village life during his childhood, his career in hotel work, and the events that erupted into warfare and slaughter. He sees his actions as an extension of his ethical responsibilities as a hotelier, which I liked very much.
