My name is Jon, and I’m a bookaholic. I always have been. As a kid, I used to stay up late reading under the covers with a flashlight when I was supposed to be sleeping. I also experimented with reading while eating, brushing my teeth, vacuuming, and even while practicing musical instruments. I listen to audiobooks during my daily commute, and read any time I have to wait in line. My favorite fiction authors include Stephen King, Michael Connelly, Lawrence Block, and Jonathan Kellerman, but I read and enjoy many others.
About This Site
I’ve decided to channel my addiction for the benefit of others, by posting reviews of the books I read. I will include both fiction and non-fiction books, and I’ll try to walk the fine line of revealing enough of the plot for a good synopsis without spoiling the ending or surprise twists. The plot descriptions will be as objective as possible, and I’ll put my opinions in a separate section. Each review will also include a link to the page on Amazon.com where you can view more reviews or purchase a copy.
Everyone has a different tolerance level for things like profanity, innuendo, or sexual content in their entertainment. I’m willing to put up with a lot for the sake of a good story, but I understand that some people are more sensitive. For that reason, each review will include a short section where I briefly list things that might offend. You can then make an informed decision whether you want to read the book.
Although this site is primarily about books, I may feature an occasional off-topic post or video.
