Avid reader looking for a permanent home for my book reviews. What makes my reviews different? I give most books I read a fair shake, and frequently read them twice before reviewing, sometimes waiting a month between reads so I can see which impressions stand the test of time (much to the dismay of my library). I try to give a brief (I don’t always succeed at this part) synopsis that represents my interpretation of the plot, rather than the book blurb, and my analysis tries to focus on the book more than me. Not that those types of reviews aren’t fun, but my goal is to remember the book, the book experience, and to share information about why others may or may not enjoy the book. You would not believe how many books I’ve accidentally re-read.
I love books and discussing them, so feel free to comment.
When not reading, I’m on booksites talking about reading, swimming, biking (but only in nice weather), working, baking, gardening, trying to teach my parrots to use words instead of shrieking, or napping. Or trying to convince my dogs that they really don’t feel like going for a walk right now. I’m usually unsuccessful at that.
