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.

The Ramayana - Bulbul Sharma The rating is for this version, not for the Ramayana per se. Though entitled "The Ramayana," this is a gloss of the text into a narrative told at about a middle reader level. While it tells me the story, I have no idea whether the details are accurate. Certainly the structure has been altered and I have no sense of the meter.
