About me and this blog

 I have been reading for entertainment since I was a child. When I was much younger I was often an impertinent child deserving of punishment (according to my parents). One of the favored forms of punishment (after the obligatory spanking) was to take away my television watching privileges. There was a 3 year span where I was not allowed to watch television at all. The best thing to come out of all this was that I needed to find other ways to entertain myself. I escaped into books. Not the type that would further me in school mind you but anything that would spark my imagination.

I am not a writer. I have no wish to be a writer. I never graduated from college and wouldn’t know how to deconstruct a sentence for all the tea in China. I am a reader. I plan to post my thoughts on various books, authors and whatever else strikes my fancy on this blog.

Feel free to comment but please try to be polite. I go by the axiom that opinions are like assholes everybody has one and they all stink with the exception of possibly mine. I believe in the open exchange of ideas and you may even convince me to change my mind if not we will have to agree to disagree.
