I am a former book reviewer, a published playwright and a nonstop reader. I read just about anything and am not one who gives up on a book or an author easily. This blog is about books I’ve read, but I hope it’s more about the experience of reading. Reading is a very personal experience, one person’s “moving, important work” is another person’s “boring, painful crap.” The comments here are mine, but I put them out there so you can share your thoughts with me. And if you want to suggest a book, please do. I’m nothing if not adventurous, as you may be able to discern. And thanks to my friend Jeanne, who made this all look as nice as it does.
