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.

My Sister's Book

The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life - Alice Schroeder

I told BookLikes this is a review so that it will add to my shelf but of course it is not really a review because my sister wrote it and I cannot objectively review her book.  But I do love it.  :)  This is the only time I'm going to mention it. 


The kitties wanted breakfast early this morning.  Never mind that it is Sunday and we stayed up late last night.  They got me up 20 minutes earlier than I get up on work days.  Then they demanded that I brush their teeth. If they will let me I am going to read a little and nap. I hope to spend the rest of the day cooking and reading.  My horoscope said I'd be inspired to paint but right now I think that's doubtful.
