Welcome to the Other Side

Greetings, and welcome to George's Backlogged Book Reviews. The purpose of this is threefold:

1) To hopefully turn people on to some really amazing books

2) To give back in those cases where authors have been extremely generous to me

3) To stress the point that good writers should also be good readers

Hopefully I'll accomplish all three things, but especially the third. Through posting my own book reviews I hope I inspire other writers to read and review as well. As the master himself, Stephen King, says: "If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write."

So what's on deck? Well, I'm glad you asked. See, I've attended Book Expo America for the last 2 years, so I have acquired a number of books over those two visits. Those books will be the main ones I'll focus on for these book reviews, initially. Unfortunately I kinda dropped the ball getting to last year's in a timely fashion, so I'll start with the ones I got from this year and work my way back. Hopefully I'll get to all of them eventually.

The first reviews to come will be for the following books:

Indelible by Dawn Metcalf
Perfection by J. L. Spelbring
The Listeners by Harrison Demchick
Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo

Stay tuned for those reviews.
