Liz Loves Books

I love to read and to talk about books. I review many of the books I read. I do not accept any author/publisher submissions for reviews. I do not read or review ARCs. I do not enter any giveaways or contests. I obtain the books I review by purchasing them at the same price they are offered to the general public at the time of purchase. My reviews are intended for the use of my fellow readers. They are not advertising or promotion. They are not beta reads or constructive criticism or editing or advice to the author. My only obligation to the author is to pay the price charged for the book at the time of purchase. My reviews are sometimes critical and I will not stop posting critical reviews just to spare delicate authors' feelings. I am happy to make new friends, but friend requests from authors or promoters who have few or no books (and/or friends) in common with me and write or promote categories I do not read (especially new adult) will be ignored. I used to read more self-published books. After recent meltdowns by self-published authors, I now only read self-published authors I've previously read or who have been recommended to me by fellow readers I trust. I also used to read young adult/new adult books but rarely do so now.

Numberpedia: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know (and a Few Things You Didn't) About Numbers - Herb Reich I have not finished this book and probably won't any time soon since I'm reading it in tiny snippets. It's perfect for exactly that. Some of the number trivia is interesting to me and some I could not care less about. But in a book that covers everything from history to science to arcana to retired sports jerseys, it's a given that there will be something for every reader and some things that bore every reader. As far as I can tell the book is factually accurate. But I can't vouch for the retired sports jerseys. I don't keep up with those.
