I never thought when I started my blog on Valentine’s Day 2009 that it would develop into mainly a book review site. I just wanted to have a place to vent occasionally, write a few simple poems, and share my passions of reading, family, hobbies, and cats. Somewhere along the way, the reading has definitely taken over, due in large part to J. Kaye of J. Kaye’s Book Blog. Thanks to her generous recommendation of me (and many others ) to book publishers, I’ve been the recipient of many free books in return for my review of their offerings. That’s also why I have a box of un-read, used books that I never seem to get to. :-)
With the start of a new year, I’m looking forward to reading many more books and sharing my reviews with my readers. There will be another book contest soon for a new autographed copy of New York Times best-selling author Michael Palmer’s latest medical thriller, The Last Surgeon. I’m reading it now and I think you’ll enjoy it very much. If you want a sneak peak, you can get one here. Mr. Palmer has lots of great interactive content on both his Facebook fan page and Twitter account. He’s hosting weekly Q&A's, book giveaways and other exclusive contests so make sure you check it out.
I'm an Iowa gal and live on an acreage with my hubby and several cats. My husband is bi-polar which makes life interesting and frustrating at times. We have 1 son who also lives in Iowa. I've always liked to read and I'll always give my honest opinion about books and everything else (which sometimes people don't appreciate). I also love to enter sweeps, do different crafts, garden, and spend time with friends and family. You can reach me by emailing winterset AT peoplepc.com
Due to the fact that I sometimes forget to say, please always assume that all of the new books and products that I review are ones that I have received free, in exchange for a possible review post. Whether I win a new book or purchase a used book at a flea market or garage sale and review it, does NOT affect my reviews. I always try to be nice, but if I don't think something is great, I’ll say. When I'm finished with a book (or product), I either keep it for myself, or give it away to someone who I know will enjoy it. I DO NOT SELL the books or products that I have received for free.
