Riverbeds are other places I love to read. The sound of the water flowing, along with the elements of Mother Nature enveloping me into a time and space many folks would call 'escaping'. And, I sit at times at the table you see here to have a cup and read a few. I glance up at the Lake Erie horizon to reflect here and there and ... travel the world again. These travels now are through the dense imaginations of fantastic authors. When I need another cup and drain the other one, I jump on my bike and ride down the avenue, grab a cup, kiss my Lady, and ride back. Have a few more.

I am not a professional reviewer, as in, I do not get paid for these reviews. A one-man band here and I run my blog as a hobby, but, provide that I did receive a buck - I would still tell it like it is for the sole reason I believe authors would appreciate a review that is either great, good, bad, or just not worth it coming from an ordinary/everyday reader as myself.
I dig the following quote from Hearts in Atlantis by Stephen King — “There are books full of great writing that don’t have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story…don’t be like the book-snobs who won’t do that. Read sometimes for the words—the language. Don’t be like the play-it-safers who won’t do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.” —

Be that as it may, a dab of contemporary and classics are also (most assuredly) an enjoyable pastime.
