Welcome to my blog. If you're addicted to books, like I am, then you've come to the right place. I mostly write about books and my experiences reading them. These are very personal book reviews. (If you can even call them book reviews...) I’m a true believer that none of us lives in a vacuum. When you read a book, watch a movie, listen to a song, etc., you absorb that art form into your life experience, and it changes you. But you also change it, because no two people see anything the same way. The way I interpret a novel may be totally different from the way you will. It’s still the same novel, but the meaning for each of us is unique. Once you express that meaning, it changes the art. So these posts are about how these books fit into my life. I’d love to hear how they fit into yours. Please make comment and share your experience.

Why edit an old post, when you can write a new one...

I was going to go back to my Eat Your Heart Out Pillars of the Earth Fans post and put in a few of my own pictures from Salisbury Cathedral, but I changed my mind, and figured it was better to make a new post.  Here you are...enjoy...
Salisbury Cathedral, February 2012-JJWBAKER

Can't you just see Jack Jackson Builder carving this statue--look closely, she's got a mini cathedral in her hand.

Restoration efforts.  It costs the UK Government GBP12,000/day to maintain this cathedral.  Check out the flying buttresses, I know what their purpose is thanks to Ken Follett.  Feb 2012-JJWBAKER
