I am an avid reader and love, more than anything, to recommend books to others and engage in literary discussions. I'm not picky about what I read-- I love mysteries, classic fiction, historical fiction, non-fiction, and especially stories that are entertaining but relate to my love of science and medicine.
This blog will mostly feature book reviews- I don't know how great I am at critiquing though, because it is rare that I don't enjoy something. Each piece of writing seems to have something to redeem it, something it can teach us.
"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."

does anyone else suddenly get hit with flashes of dialogue or scenery or characterization that would be perfect to use if you actually had a plot you could incorporate it into
This is my life.

I love this. It’s something I need to think about a lot, but also a bit of a variation of it. Not only think for yourself, but do things yourself. Don’t let books be a substitute for living your own stories.
Live a life worth writing about.
