Show me the books he loves and I shall know the man
far better than through mortal friends.
Some of my best friends are books. This blog is about my search for new friends and reacquainting myself with old ones. My life kind of revolves around books, so it will also wander into random thoughts about books and publishing as well. I only post reviews of books I like because, quite frankly, I read for a living and don’t waste time with books I don’t enjoy in some way.
My “day job” is the Book Awards Coordinator for five international book awards. From time to time I will share award winners, noting them in my reviews. I might also share some highlights of my work (conventions, ceremonies, festivals) just for fun.
Because work can be fun, I work at an independent bookstore occasionally in addition to my work on book awards. Through this job I sometimes get ARCs (Advanced Reader’s Copies) from publishers and sometimes share reviews of those books on this blog. The books discussed are on this blog because I enjoyed them and wanted to share of my own volition. I don’t say anything about a book here I wouldn’t say if I was handselling it to you in the store.
