I am the proverbial avid reader and foodie wannabe. I live in Colorado where there are just enough distractions to provide good excuses for not being a more committed writer.
I like reading and I like eating — sometimes at the same time. I like writing, too, but that’s harder to do while pursuing those other interests. Through this blog I plan to share reviews (of around 250 words each) about what I’ve read or where I’ve eaten. It’s unlikely I will review the meals cooked by me, family members or friends — unless I can’t help it. It’s also improbable that I’ll review books written by family members and friends.
I read much more frequently and quickly than I dine out, so there are apt to be more books reviews. If you’ve read something I’ve reviewed, let me know what you think.
Thank you for taking a look at The Blue Page Special!
