If you find some gems among these mostly non-fiction book reviews, my blog has served its purpose. I hope you enjoy the pictures, too. Photography is one of my many interests.

I’m not selling books here, so links that occasionally follow the titles point you to LibraryThing (a wonderful social site for book lovers) and WorldCat (OCLC’s huge world-wide library catalog collective) rather than booksellers. There are ads on the site, but they have no influence on the books I read or the reviews I write. They merely help defray the cost of the site.


Current & Popular Non-Fiction

The first two lists below show the most in-demand non-fiction titles this week at my county library.  The third list shows some titles that caught my fancy, even if those library people don’t agree.
