I like to read. It's one of my favorite pastimes, especially on the lunch hour when I need an escape from the work environment. I thought I'd make a list of the books I've read here, more for my own benefit than for any other reason but if you should find something interesting from my notes, all the better!

The site grew quickly in the first couple of years so I changed the navigation by categorizing books and added a one to three-star ranking system. Only my very favorite books get three stars. If there seem to be a lot of them, it means I hit a good streak! Believe me, they don't all get three stars! Because all of us have such unique tastes, along with the fact that I don't like to discourage reading any book, a one-star book isn't necessarily a bad book, it's just not to my personal taste. If you disagree with me, by all means, let me know! I'll post your comments alongside mine!

If a book has shooting stars, it means the author came across this site and took time to contact me. What a joy it is to hear from authors. Thank you! Please keep writing! We, your readers, want to discover your latest writings, and we wish you continued success!

Authors, when you put out a new book, I'm happy to promote it on this site at no charge. Send me some release information and I'll share it with viewers!

Readers, if you've read the books I've read and want me to post your comments, I'll be happy to do so! Whether you agree or disagree, send me your thoughts.

Happy reading!
