Personal Images

Sending me an image (such as for the book slideshow) grants me permission to upload it to my website without any form of compensation or acknowledgment. I reserve the right to choose the images I display and refuse those I deem improper.


Disclosure of Material Connection: Some books come to me free from the author or publisher with the hope that I'll mention them on this blog. There is no requirement for me to write a positive review and the opinions I express are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

I don't like the star system in rating books, but when I have to use it, here is how I do so:

5 Stars - The book is a Wow! for me. I'm lost in the story and the writing. The plot and/or characters stay with me for days. I highly recommend it.

4 Stars - I really enjoyed reading it. I'd have no problems recommending it to others.

If I can't give it at least four stars, I don't review it. HOWEVER, please remember that everyone has different reading tastes, and it doesn't mean the book doesn't have merit.

You are welcome to contact me about doing a review, but please be aware that my schedule is generally full. If I turn you down, it will be because I don't have the time or because it's not a book/genre that fits my interests.
