About meI have been an avid reader most of my life and simply cannot imagine a world without books. I will pick up any book that intrigues me (yes, I can be initially drawn to a book by the artwork on the cover) and I am always open to new authors. I can lose myself for hours browsing the shelves and book piles in a bookstore and have resigned myself to the fact that I will never find the time to read all the books that I want to read.... but that is not going to stop me from trying!

About my libraryPredominantly fiction with some non-fiction thrown in. This library represents books I have finished reading as of the start of 2008, as well as books I own that are part of my ever growing TBR pile. With the unveiling of Collections, I have added the more memorable books read and owned prior to 2008. Books discarded unfinished will now comprise the Abandoned collection of my library, to remind me of the clunkers as well.

My name is Luke Sherwood, and I was lucky enough to be able to read R.C. Binstock's latest book, "Swift River." Mr. Binstock is best known for "Tree of Heaven" - starred review in Publishers Weekly:

I published a review of "Swift River" here

I've been reviewing books at LT for some years, and apparently so have you. I promised the author I'd try to get as many reviewers to look at his book as I could. Since I can't do this wholesale in a discussion on LibraryThing, I have to do it one reviewer at a time. The book will be offered to Early Reviewers in a month or so, but this opportunity beats even that.

If you click Mr. Binstock's site, you can click on the book cover and follow the link to order your copy.

No spam, just a sales pitch to help a self-publishing author get some publicity. Thanks so much!
Thank you, Lori! It's all yours.
I see it's your 6th Thingaversary, Lori! It's been fun following your reading adventures this year. Here's to many more!
Thoroughly enjoyed your review of Netherworld. Spot on.
Lori - I have mailed you a copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower plus a bonus book that will remain a surprise. I don't know when they will get to you but enjoy them.

Lori- If you want to add the Bleak House G.R. to the Wiki list, that would be great. Looking forward to that one. Thanks!

I won't make you read the series to find out. The Double Dog Dare Gourmet Cafe appears in [Tricked]. Basically, you order something like 3 items for your dinner partner and s/he does the same for you. You don't find out what it is you ate until after you've eaten it. The foods are things that are considered delicacies, but if you knew what was in it, you'd be grossed out - things like insects and calf's brains. LOL.
It's up! The group read of The Bloody Chamber is here: See you soon!
Hi Lori,
You mentioned a while ago that you might be up for a small group read of The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter. Are you still up for that? We'd said June, and it fits right in with the women in sf & f challenge going on right now. Let me know.
