About meI'm a reformed attorney that loves being a high school English teacher.

About my libraryThese are strictly books I have read since starting on Librarything. I use Librarything as a way to record what I have read and to get recommendations for future readings. My ratings will appear high -- but it simply means that I choose carefully what I spend my precious free time reading. It is also an indication that Librarything is working.

Noticed you liked Mudbound, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also southern (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more before you commit:


I love Always Running too, it's a great book. And the author Luis J. Rodriguez is a great guy. -- Jeff Rivera (Author of FOREVER MY LADY)
Thanks for adding me to your list of interesting libraries. Your tags make me think that you must be a teacher, maybe middle school or high school--right? It looks like you've just gotten started here on LT; if so, welcome!
