Interested in other genres? Great! I’ll make occasional reviews of books from some of my other favorite genres as well. Like fantasy, sci-fi, mysteries, espionage, classics, memoirs, medicine,…to name a few.

About Me

I am a reader, a devoted one.  I have been poring over books for as long as I can remember: from routine weekend library trips in my youth to exploring new, “hi-tech” ways of reading with e-readers and apps as an adult. Over the last few years, I have had a growing interest in historical fiction–books, movies, and television series alike–a literary interest I’d like to share with others.

I’ve tutored for 10+ years, gleefully “corrupting” my pupils with a love for reading whenever possible…mwa ha ha. *Ahem.* And I’d like to continue spreading my love for the written, and audible, word with as many others as possible.

One of the many lovable characters in my life, and images of this site, is Reese, my dachshund and constant companion. His will be a regular presence on this blog, as is true of my actual reading experience. (He’s got a new friend now–Hershey! She’s in training to be a reading buddy! I’ve just got to get her to stop trying to eat my books.) ^_^

Happy Reading!
