I am a Bay Area librarian with a passion for literacy, literature and all things literary, French and funny.
You can also find me here, but note, that I generally do not friend authors unless I have read or am interested in their work. Don’t take offense if I don’t accept your request. I don’t want to be just another name on some list on the social networking scene.

Although I do receive both solicited and unsolicited books in the mail, a lot of the publisher-sent review titles come through LibraryThing’s Early Reviews program. Most of the books I review are either library copies or my own books. I receive no payments for my reviews. I am not a part of any affiliates plan, so I get no money from the links I post on my blog. This site was born as an outlet for me to share my thoughts on the books that I’ve read. Promoting literacy is my life and my career.

Please note that a review copy sent to me does not always guarantee a review or mention on my blog. I will make sure that those books find their way into hands that will appreciate the book. When I do finish the book, I will review it honestly on this site. You can send me title queries with the following form, please be advised of the following:
Subjects I WILL consider:
- Fiction (within limits)
- History (mostly European)
- Historical Fiction (Victorian era or earlier)
Subjects I WON’T consider:
- Online only titles
