Mount! by Jilly Cooper

I was thrilled to spot a new book by one of my favourite authors on display at the Brodie Library a few months ago, and it didn’t disappoint. Jilly Cooper is popular British writer who has a passion for horses, and a knack for relationships. Her newest book, Mount! focusses on Rupert Campbell-Black’s horse racing... Continue Reading →

The Wheel of Time

Every once in awhile I find I am compelled to deviate from my normal reading tastes and delve into a genre I rarely read.  In this case the genre is fantasy and the books are the Robert Jordan Wheel of Time series.  A few years ago I was over at my buddy Dave’s house and... Continue Reading →

Ole Agent Pendergast

Awhile ago a coworker had recommended the authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child to me, especially the books featuring Agent Pendergast.  After reading the first book in the Pendergast series, I began my journey through the entire Pendergast series, as well as all other co-authored works and all individual works (which, by the way are...
