This is going to be a blog about books I love and want to share with other readers. I’m not a book critic; I’m not going to bother you with my thoughts about a book I detested (not least because I probably didn’t finish it). I just want to recommend books I think people should experience.

I’ll write a few paragraphs with enough information to give you an idea of what the book is about, and hopefully entice you to read it. What I won’t do is give you so much information that you are constantly remembering what I’ve said and looking for what I saw. You should have your own reading experience.

Sometimes a book has a subtext that catches my eye, something in the writing that deepens my reading (and writing) experience.  When this happens The Attentive Reader will point out what she noticed.
