Mostly Essays About My Books and Their Authors

Seven of my Nine Blogs are Book-Related!

You can call me 'an old book blogger,' not because I'm old, or because I've been blogging for a long time, but because I mostly blog about old books and their authors. The books that I blog about are catalogued on Library Thing.
