I love books. I also love humor. So why not make a funny blog with book reviews? Here, you’ll hopefully be amused by the writing and excited by the books. I’ll only review good-enough-to-read books, so none of the books will be “Well, you can use it to hold the door open…” More stuff is coming. More pictures, a bigger and better blogroll, that sort of thing. In case you’re confused by the rating system, we use a 3 check system, so instead of stars, it’s checks. That’s BookMarks.  Have fun.

    I’m thinking you’re not so much of the swashbuckling adventure reader, as in “on the high seas” and “shiver me timbers”. Am I right? (Just working on a range of independent reading for this coming year…)

      Right as always. I tend to make more fun of the adventure books than read them…they’re too car chase-y for me.

    Hi, Isabelle,

    I just read your latest entries. About Agatha Christie: I feel your pain. How about this: Go to Amazon.com and search “the best of Agatha Christie.” You’ll get a good list to preview; read the reviews, and perhaps pick a title that is more akin to “Murder on…” in terms of the period in which she wrote it.

    I checked this out myself and think it a decent route to take when wanting more of a certain author.

    Have you ever tried Charles Dickens?

    Happy hunting!

      LInda, I have not tried dickens but I’m going to try Mark Twain. And I have found more luck in the Christie department. Wikipedia is my friend.

      • Linda DeSpain says :

        What title(s) did you find lucky in the Christie department, and why was/were it/they (a) lucky find(s)?

        Every Christie besides The Pale Horse were great to me. I guess I haven’t read any of the bad ones.

    What do you think about The Alchemist; is a review coming? What’s your take on it as a parable?
