The Warmth and Comfort of a Good Book

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????My purpose in creating this blog is to share  books about the things, people, and events that affect every day people the most. I love history from the time of the Industrial Revolution forward, as well as more recent history in the making; Civil Rights and women’s rights; excellent literary fiction; biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs of a wide variety of people. We all need to laugh, and so I make a point of reading humor now and then. I also love a good mystery or thriller.  It’s a treat to run across a brilliant debut novel, but I don’t accept, read, or review unsolicited manuscripts.

This blog is creeping up on its third anniversary. Statistics tell us that most blogs are abandoned by this time. I, however, have found my muse. My numbers are climbing–slowly, but always upward–and more importantly, I am having a really good time reading and sharing.

Net Galley has been an indispensable partner, providing me with the big majority of the galleys I have reviewed here. Last year I read more than 150 books, and most of them free; this is my idea of paradise. But as you can see from my reviews, a free book isn’t necessarily a good book, and I call ’em like I see ’em.

Whether you read digitally, or prefer to flip open an old-fashioned paper copy and drink in the story there, I hope you’ll join me. And thanks for stopping by!
