Books Read

I rarely say a book is "good" or "bad" because, frankly, I simply never finish a poorly written book and you will never see a review of one from me. However, I "like" or "don't like" a book based on whether the topic and/or story interests me.

Thus, I share with you the books that I read (with an annual goal of 100 books read per year) and tell you whether or not I like them and, importantly, why. That will help you decide if a book may be of interest to you regardless of whether you and I enjoy the same types of books.

And, please, share with me what you are reading. I try very hard to read authors I have not tried before.
