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.

Behind the Beautiful Forevers - Katherine Boo

A useful and very depressing book for anyone involved in international aid, loans, or service. I'll consider grouping it with a book about the Grameen Bank and something about best practices in international aid for an advanced course on ethics and hope.
