I can't count the number of times friends and acquaintances have asked me to recommend a book; or how many times I have been in the library and ended up discussing with other patrons how hard it is to find a book worth reading. So maybe I can provide a service and start some discussions about a few of the vast number of books I read. As a disclaimer, I do not in any way pretend to have perfect taste in books. There is no guarantee of satisfaction if you take me at my word and read a book that you decide has been a waste of your time. What I can promise is an eclectic variety of suggestions and reviews based on my own experiences and thoughts. I love to read; I love to write and I love to exchange thoughts and ideas with you guys. So, if you read a book and want to recommend it, post a comment (I'm always looking for reading suggestions); if you read a book that I have reviewed or recommended, post a comment with your thoughts (I am really interested in what you have to say). What an amazing blessing it is to be able to read and to have access to books. As Mark Twain is purported to have said: "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." So let's do it!
