My Booklist

   These are books that I have read over the course of several years.  Just like music, my taste covers a vast range of topics.  I have to thank my mother for the love of reading that she instilled in me.  Unfortunately, I do not dedicate enough time to "sitting down and getting lost in a book."  I'm working on it.  I plan to add to this list as the year unfolds, so stop by every now and then.  You might see something that makes you head to the library or the local bookstore.
