Introduction In the city that never sleeps, you can always find some literary gems proudly displayed behind the plate glass window of the Union Square Barnes & Noble or resting on a street vendor's blanket at the center of Greenwich Village. An avid reader for all of my life, I decided to create this blog to share with others of a similar mindset some of the books that I have (and recommend) from my library. With a penchant for both contemporary and historic true crime novels, biographical works, well crafted or trashy fiction. I invite my readers to share their thoughts, reviews and recommendations.
