Book Reviews

I love to read. I’m one of those people who fit into the category of “so many books, so little time.” I have a library card and I’m not afraid to use it. My Amazon.com wish list has 247 items. I borrow books from family, friends and co-workers. Occasionally I’ll even read a book that hubby has. Hey, it’s happened.

But that phrase “so many books, so little time” is true. I can’t spend all day and all night reading, and even if I could, I still couldn’t read all the books that strike my fancy. One has to decide which books to read and which books to leave on the want-to-read list.

Book reviews can be helpful. I have all kinds of book review email newsletters sent to me. They are one reason my Amazon.com list is the size it is (and growing). I have a friend, Judy King, who reviews science books. I love science books (among others). This year Judy started reviewing books for the Story Circle Network. She recently finished her tenth review and now has her own Story Circle Book Review page. With her tenth review, she became one of their “star” reviewers.

Some of the books Judy reviewed were on my to-read list before she reviewed them; some got added because I read her review. If you’re looking for some science books to read and need help deciding, take a look at Judy’s book review page. Don’t be surprised if your to-read list gets a little longer, just like mine did.
