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.

My Book of Flowers - Grace Kelly, Gwen Robyns Monaco.A commonplace book on the theme of flowers, this oversized volume by Princess Grace is conversational but erudite. She describes her own garden and interests in flower arranging and dried flower compositions (with photos), then moves on to flowers in history, poetry, and the like. Enjoyable for browsing or a straight read-through.
