Welcome to my blog. I’ll be posting reviews of whatever I’ve just finished reading, plus anything else book-related that catches my eye. I particularly enjoy crime fiction which stretches or pushes at the boundaries of the genre, but I’m also content to read your bog standard police procedural. I’m currently working my way through Ed McBain’s epic, 50-year 87th Precinct series, in homage to the writer who first got me interested in a life of crime.
If you want to know more about me, I can do nothing better than quote Bogart in The Big Sleep, ‘There’s not much to tell… I went to college. I can still speak English when my business demands it.‘ Thankfully, it doesn’t demand it very often. I teach at a secondary school, and have a young family that takes up the rest of my time.
I don’t have a review policy on the blog – the closest thing to it is this post. If I like a book, I review it. If I don’t like it, I keep schtum. But I’m always interested in anything new – so if you want to reach me you can do so via firstname.lastname@example.org, and also The Twitter – right here.
