So, just who is this Bookstooge bloke who rudely intruded into your calm, peaceful and serene existence? You might be asking yourself this very question. I know I do.

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:



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.


3) I like Science fiction, Fantasy, Classics [1900’s and earlier] and manga. I’ll read other stuff, but not regularly. And I read a lot. Just check out my Year shelves and you’ll see how much I read.


4) I love my wife. Even more than pizza! And yes, I tell her that. And she thinks I’m ok too 😀


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 🙂


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. Eh, never wanted to learn Greek or Hebrew anyway!


7) I am NOT a people person. People wear me out, even online. Then I say things that later I sometimes regret. Ok, most of the time.


8) I WILL get upset at you. I will probably unfollow you at some point. Chances are that I will then re-follow you. Don’t be surprised.


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. You insult me or denigrate me on my own posts and you’re blocked.


10) Yes. I am touchy. Prickly might be a better word.


11) 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!


  5. […] in an anime phase, but I never took the time to find out what it was or anything. It’s when Bookstooge mentioned it as a favourite that I knew I had to try it out now. It’s probably much more […]
