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 folk 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 writers and 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, 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.” —
