No blog post - Cleaning Out
No blog post today. I spent yesterday cleaning out stuff, throwing some away, and bagging other things to give away to St. Vincent de Paul. Two hours getting my taxes ready, and finished Christmas cards in the evening. Busy day, but since I woke up at 1:30 Sunday morning thinking about all I needed to do, I knew I needed to work on Sunday rather than work on the blog.
And, it's a busy week, a play one night, and the Desert Sleuths holiday party the same night I have to make a cherry pie for our potluck at work. Hope to have a blog post for you in a day or two. I'll keep you posted!
I have been a library manager/administrator for over 30 years, in Ohio, Florida, Arizona, and, now, Indiana. Winner of the 2011 Arizona Library Association Outstanding Library Service Award. I am a contributing Book Reviewer for Library Journal, Mystery Readers Journal, ReadertoReader.com and VibrantNation.com. Winner of the 2009 and 2010 Spinetingler Awards for Best Reviewer. First Fan Guest of Honor for Desert Sleuths Chapter of Sisters in Crime, Write Now! Conference.
It's an honor to be asked to review books, and I'm grateful to all the publishers, publicists, and authors who send me books. Thank you. Reviews will appear on my blog if I've had a chance to read, and finish, the book. If I do not finish a book, I won't review it, and I will not respond to emails asking when, or if, I'll be reviewing a book.
My reviews are only my opinion, and do not reflect the views of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library.
I will not review self-published books, and, at the present time, do not accept books in e-book format.
My Oct. 19, 2009 blog provides full disclosure that I only receive review copies of books, with no other compensation. All review copies are marked as such. If there any any questions, please feel free to contact me.
