When my publisher suggested I might contribute some book reviews to my website, I had a distinct feeling of inevitability. If there was ever someone who ought to be able to do that, it would be me. I’ve had “my nose in a book” since I can remember and I see nothing to indicate that this tendency is going to end any time soon. A friend and I were chatting the other day and we agreed that one of life’s best moments was when you stagger home from the library or bookstore with your bookbag so heavy you can barely lift it—you dump all the books out—and then that lovely moment when you decide which to read first! Ah…the simple pleasures are best!
