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.

Daba's Travels from Ouadda to Bangui - Makombo Bamboté, George Ford Central African Republic.This middle readers novel about a boy in the Central African Republic is a somewhat diluted bildungsroman, most interesting for its descriptions of the boy's daily life. While the village scenes are illuminating, the fluid and dynamic illustrations are its most charming and noteworthy element.
