About

First of all, welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

This is my book review page where my complete reviews are stored. I am not a professional reviewer, just someone who likes books and likes writing about them for fun.

Full reviews are posted here and Leafmarks; ratings, partial reviews, and everything else can be found at Goodreads.

When not reading, I’m usually here. So feel free to leave a comment and I’ll get back to you soon.

 

A note about this blog

This page isn’t so much a blog but an archive of my reviews. I started it a few years ago after Goodreads revised its terms of service regarding book reviews, and it was clear that there would be a major shake up. I needed a place to store my reviews just in case one of them no longer complied with GR’s new TOS. WordPress was the perfect place for what I required, and so off I went and here I am still.

    I am nomination you for the ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award.’ I know not everyone is about awards but this one is an exception even if you don’t like the process. It shows that you are inspiring others and I want you to know you inspire me. It’s not for everyone, however, and it should not create pressure or frustration.

    I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. I know these things circle about. If you have already done it you can ignore it or do what I did. I got nominated a second time and since it helps other blogs out by getting new viewers I thought I would participate again. You know I Iove your blog so I had to nominate you:) The rules you can find here

          In that case, I’ll try to get to it sooner. 🙂 These awards and nominations are really fun and I’d love to get involved more, but I always run out of people to tag since I’m not following that many.
