A Man With An Agenda

I'm an indie bookseller in Vermont, sometime public servant, and voracious reader. I love antiques, cats, D&D, Victorian literature and pulpy nonsense.

 

I've been writing at least something about everything I read since May of 2010. Many old reviews have dead links to Goodreads, sorry, I'm kind of working on that, but if you look the titles up on Booklikes you can find my thoughts here. I also read a lot of arcs, but don't review them until close to their release date.

 

As a small bookseller I have a suggestion: If you prefer audio or ebooks, Try Kobo or Libro.fm - or asking your local bookseller for an Amazon (and their many subsidiaries) alternative. These are options that are similar in cost, but support local economies and fairly treated employees. When signing up you can select a participating bookstore and a portion of the sales go to that store at no additional cost. Amazon is destroying downtown America and every small purchase through a real storefront makes a huge difference. Independent Bookstores are on a rise again, but others are still struggling. Thank you for your support and shopping local.
