There is a standing challenge for readers, can you read 50 books a year. I do this pretty regularly without trying. I read a lot. There is a good percentage of that reading that is quick and easy. I read children’s books, a good deal of teen fiction and a (more than) occasional romance novel. I probably only read about 4 non-fiction books a year. I pick up more than that, but I don’t often read them through. I’ll find myself reading a series after most of them have been published so I can breeze through the whole set without pauses. I love my public library.
But I am a writer and a blogger (Spiral Visions is my weekly blog). My book Manifest Divinity (non-fiction, doesn’t it figure) has made me truly appreciate the value of readers and especially of those readers willing and able to write a review. So I set myself a challenge of 50 reviews in a year and I set up this blog to help me meet that challenge.
I won’t suggest that you’ll like everything that I read, or that I’ll cover your favorite genre. I won’t even promise to read books that are current. If you’ve read a book I review please feel free to comment adding your own thoughts. We don’t have to agree, we just have to play nice.
