About


Books make our lives richer. Just, for most of us, not financially.

This is where I tell stories loosely related to books, reading and other literary adventures.  It won’t all be latest releases and I struggle with defining genres, it’ll just be whatever book I happen to like the look of at the time. Maybe it will be somewhere for you to share your own reading, too. That would be lovely.

I buy books at local and independent brick and mortar retailers where I can. I also recommend Better World Books for their ethics and prices. I encourage you to check your secondhand bookshop or your local library. Libraries should be valued much more than they are. Free books! I also read many books in Kindle version. Here is a list of ways you can support authors even as you read their books for close to, if not actually, nothing.

What’s the deal with the blog name? This from TV show Black Books.
