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.

Taiwan Folktales: Proverbs, Folk Sayings, and Folktales from Taiwan - Fred Lobb Taiwan. An enjoyable collection of Taiwanese folk tales, well-rendered and with useful explanatory notes that include origins, variants, and source materials.
