About This Blog

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I'm not on board with the whole ebook thing. I enjoy books in all their formats. But there is nothing quite like a bookstore with its neatly arranged shelves of books and artfully created displays of new arrivals, best sellers, and suggested reading. I especially enjoy discovering small, independent bookstores and have made it my mission to visit and report back on as many of these gems as I can. That is my focus, but there is really nothing that is off limits as long as it is about books or reading. Hope you enjoy my blog and come back often.

New Take on Classic Authors

Classic literature and female authors? It's no secret that to be taken seriously as writers, 19th century women faced an uphill battle. My favorite classic novel, Silas Marner, provides a great example. Mary Anne Evans obviously felt it necessary to use the male pseudonym George Eliot. Some say these inequities have not yet been completely overcome even today. This video adds a bit of humor to the dilemma of the female author. Enjoy.
