Here are some things to know about me that might make your interactions a tiny bit easier. If you still have questions,  you can always email me:

Bookstoog eat gmaild otcom


1) I am a pretty devout Christian. Weird personal mix of Baptist and 7th Day Adventist. To over-simplify it, that means I believe in the Bible literally and I go to church on Saturday instead of Sunday. It also means that it influences what I read, how I read and how I review.




2) I am a Man. I cannot state this boldly enough or enough times. Be prepared. Mancakes Ahead!




3) I like Science fiction, Fantasy, Classics [1900’s and earlier] and manga. I’ll read other stuff, but not regularly.


4) I tend to read 100+ books a year.



5) Of the 5 Love Languages, [quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, or physical touch] my main one is Words of affirmation. Or just words 🙂 Which means that I tend to post and comment quite a bit. I am NOT a once a week poster.


6) To go along with #1, I graduated from a non-accredited Bible school, so I’ve got a working man’s knowledge of how to be a Pastor, just not the actual degree. Or the temperament.



7) I am NOT a people person. People wear me out, even online. Then I say things that later I sometimes regret. Then I need chicken fingers to recover!



8) I am happily married to Mrs Bookstooge. So I’m sorry ladies, but I am not on the market.



9) If you disagree with something in my posts or reviews, feel free to say so; IF you want to actually have a conversation with someone who disagrees with you. Most times I will try to move such conversations to email.


10) I am a land surveyor. I work outdoors year round in New England. The picture below is of me. It typifies why I like being a surveyor.

      Thanks! I did see that “Short & Sweet” shoutout 🙂

      And always glad to support some people who are constantly blogging. The majority of the people I follow are 1 or 2 times a week bloggers, if that. You two are in my cadre of “heavy” bloggers and keep me going to my feed each day. Keeps life interesting…

      Thank you.

      I do not have an account at GR. I did, until the Great Censorship debacle of ’13. Then I realized that GR had sold out and would edit, by their rules, what I could or could not say in a review. They don’t get to do that to me. So here I am online, free to write what I want about the books I read. And I don’t have to deal with immature indie authors here either. Big plus!
