I am a High School Latin/Ancient Greek/History teacher, avid reader, N.Y. Giants fan, and Rush (as in Canadian Prog. rock) fan. Some might say that my reading choices are rather eclectic. I enjoy reading a wide range of books especially literature in translation, classics, historical fiction, history and travel writing and poetry. I especially like to support small press and indie authors.
I read serious literary fiction with well-developed characters, mellifluous prose and an interesting plot. The philosophy behind my blog is threefold; I spread the word about books through my reviews to readers who are likeminded, I give away books to my fellow readers to spread around the enjoyment of good books. Lastly I believe it is important to help authors connect a bit more with their readers through interviews and guest posts.
The best way for me to enjoy a good book is with a cup of Chinese black tea, steeped with the correct temperature of hot water and for just the right amount of time and finished off with a splash of raw milk.
My father was a book binder for 44 years, so yes, I actually am the “Book Binder’s Daughter.” Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope that you find a good book and I look forward to your comments.
