The idea for Book Blather is the direct result of a hellacious hot flash. Jolted out of peaceful slumber, I began flapping the covers. My brain woke up and joined the party, busily spinning out a slew of possibilities. By dawn's early light, I knew what I wanted to do: create a blog where people could come together to share comments, opinions and reviews about the books they are reading. With my writing schedule, I knew I couldn't handle it alone. Consequently, with the help of some very special friends, this blog became a reality. With our diverse backgrounds (age and geography), each of us will reflect a unique perspective. The rest of the platform belongs to you, readers and writers. I hope you will participate by adding your comments and/or short, concise reviews. Because we're voracious readers, we welcome all genres.
