My name's Luke Sherwood, and I'm looking for some reviewers from LibraryThing to look at R.C. Binstock's latest book, "Swift River."

The book will soon be offered to the Early Reviewers here, but this opportunity beats even that. Binstock is best known for "Tree of Heaven" - here's the Publishers Weekly starred review:

I recently read "Swift River" and liked it quite a lot. Here's my review from my blog:

I promised the author I would try to get as many reviewers to see it as possible. If you go to Binstock's site, and click on the cover art the link takes you to where you can order your copy.

I appreciate anything you can do for this self-publishing author. Thanks!
...and you liked my gallery? Thanks for that, but it was a lot more risgue than it is now. I've been censored somewhat and it is but a mere shadow of it's former self.
But while we're on the subject, judging by your gallery, you've been around a bit. Well done sir and, looking through just a small part of your library, you are extremely well read. I'm ashamed to admit that those few books we share, are not high on my read again list (if I've even read some of them once)
Thanks for your visit (to Varietist) It's been a pleasure to look through your quotations. Very profound, some of them.
Thanks. It's an evolving concept. Add something here. Take it away there.
Hi gbill,

Would you be able to set up the word games that we all did sooo much enjoy back in 2012??
They went from 5 to 10 letter words..the 10 ending with a 5 letter change??

I hope that you are able to guide the way.

Thank you for adding me to your interesting libraries. It brought me here to look at yours--you have some unique books!
Thank you so much Greg! I totally envy you the library! Come on, more than seven hundreds..
Well, yes, Greg. I have a big bunch of books. Owning a library has been one of my preoccupations, and although a huge proportion are mysteries, I'm well satisfied. Having read and digested them is another story!
I'm back to thank you for your review of The Gravity of Birds. It's today's Kindle Daily Deal, and I might have bought it had you not written a warning and included a couple of passages. I found the first a bit overwritten and the second not strong enough to excuse the first. So that's $1.99 saved for another book!
If anybody is going to be intimidated, I'm the one!
Now that is very nice of you, and I appreciate the compliment and the visit.
I see that we have a fair number of books in common, and I'm off to read your review of a couple - maybe *Echo Maker* and *Baltizar and Blimunda* to see what you thought.
Happy Reading!

goo says how cute!!!!!
Hello back. Thanks also for the friend offer! Although I am not extremely active on LT, I try to keep my library current and occasionally manage a decent review, I suppose. But the volume of my review output is nothing compared to yours. Nice work. I could/should be reading more avidly these days - I have more time now. But like so many of us, I suffer from a 'condition' - that tendency to meddle in too many diverse hobbies. Plus, I neglect to write about every book.

I am working reduced engineer's hours, myself, having retired recently from the field of radio astronomy instrumentation - and then having come back to help out on a specific project. It keeps the cash flow alive. Wife here also, one son - married, and a very recent first grandchild. No one is ever quite ready for that perspective-changing title - grandpa. Especially for an old counter-culture type whose self-image has always wanted to hang out somewhere north of late twenties. But what capacity to unexpectedly change your heart!

Nice to make your acquaintance. Marcus Aurelius and Lao-Tsu are two of my biggest philosophical influences. You have to feel close to writers who so beautifully reveal what you somehow already knew.

Checking in from time to time, hope to read you soon. Best.
