I agreed to do a book review for a local magazine, and so I read the local book A Century of Curling by the Port Arthur Curling Club (PACC). A Century of Curling chronicles the history of the PACC from 1887 to 1987. This is by no means the type of book I normally read, but it was interesting nevertheless. I don't really have anything to say about it though (which may make writing a review for it a bit tough). i will say that the fun stories and facts were pretty fun, but I had a much harder time with the lists of people. There are also lots of fun older pictures of curlers curling and renovating the club, so for those alone this book is totally worth glancing through.
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
