Head Reviewer/Site Owner/Shelf Manager
I manage the bulk of the reviews and keep the others in line (sometimes). I am in charge of Read-it-if Reviews, Fiction in 50, Utopi-rama and Bruce’s Lucky Dip. I’m also the overseer of allocating this blog’s Gargie Awards and the Gargoyle-in-Charge of the Small Fry Safari Kid Lit Readers Challenge! Sometimes I do Spine Poetry. I am fond of crocheted hats.
Poetess, Crocheter of fine hats
Welcome to the shelf – I hope you find something enlightening, inspirational, or at the very least, mildly amusing during your stay with us. I manage the Haiku and Lantern Reviews, and Spine Poetry on occasion. I am also responsible for compiling the odd Ode to an Author. I’m the most well-travelled of the shelf-denizens, having visited Japan, Germany, England, Wales, Ireland and Singapore. Here is a picture of me at the Cumberland Pencil Museum in the Lakes District. I highly recommend it for pencil fanciers of all persuasions. Click on the photo for more information about the pencil museum! I am fond of crocheting hats.
Bruce, Mad Martha, Guru Dave and Toothless the Dragon
The Maniacal Book Club take on the books that don’t fit under either Bruce or Martha’s review styles. Each member of the club presents their own unique take on the book under discussion.
The Good, The Sad and The Quirky
These three are the physical representations of Bruce’s bookish emotions. The Triplets appear when a book needs a bit of in-depth analysis.
