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.

Gulliver's Travels - Jonathan Swift,  David Hyde Pierce Read by David Hyde Pierce. A good satire of both the travel writing genre and Swift's political milieu. Each of the adventures has its very funny aspects. It's clear why the journey to Lilliput is the most popular: It's a tight story with well-chosen "factual" details to support its claim to be non-fiction, plus a great deal of amusing scatology.
