I love reading books of many genres.  I enjoy the classics by authors such as  Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, C. S. Lewis, L. Frank Baum and many others.  I also enjoy historical romance, contemporary romance, magical fantasy books by J. K. Rowling, African-American literature, biographies, travel essays, fiction and spiritual books.  I hope that you find my reviews helpful.  Just click on the book cover or the link below it to read my review.
