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.

A Life Inspired: Tales of Peace Corps Service - Peace Corps An anthology of short, personal essays by Peace Corps Volunteers and Returned Volunteers. There's a nice breadth of countries and experiences, including those of several African-Americans. Read to learn more about the Peace Corps or in a class to stimulate discussion about issues such as acculturation. For better literary quality, read a book-length Peace Corps narrative that has been better edited for style.
