Welcome to the No Charge Bookbunch!

images-1Someone once told me there was nothing out there to read – like saying nothing to wear with a closet full of clothes.  No charge here for ideas on what to read – hope you will try some on for size.

Most of my books are from my local library, but I cannot leave a bookstore without buying a book.  My day is not complete without my online New York Times (and sometimes the Washington Post), and my  New Yorker magazines usually pile up until I have a long flight.  When my shelf gets too heavy, I recycle them to friends or to the library, but I’m always looking for a good book, so please offer suggestions for reading.

Just lurk, if you prefer, but every now and then, please send in a comment so I know you are out there.

Who Am I?

Rosemary Wolfe…an avid reader, published author, sometime editor, experimental cook, itinerant walker, travel enthusiast,

displaced East Coaster missing the city – but reveling in ocean views from my island lanai…

and, yes, I really do read all the books I review…

    Couldn’t find a spot to comment on your Book Club selections for 2017. We read several of your selections last year – I’ll be interested to hear what you think of the ones you haven’t yet reviewed.

    I’ve just come across your blog and I can totally relate to not being able to leave a bookstore without buying something. I always go in telling myself I’m just browsing but then they’ll have a buy one, get one half price offer on and my will power vanishes! I have a few of my favourite books to recommend on my blog if you’re looking for suggestions!

    Hi Rosemary! I’m Emma Dubin, and I work for Sky Pony Press, an imprint of Skyhorse Publishing (New York City). I’m loving your reviews on children’s and young adult literature — they’re making me thinking of a new mid-grade fantasy novel we’ve recently published: THE SECRET ROOM, by Antonia Michaelis. Please shoot me an email if you’re interested in reading it, and I’ll be more than happy to send you a copy!

    Thank you for you blog about Edith Wharton during the 150th anniversary of her birth! I am curious if you would be interested in reading the YA biography of Edith by Connie Nordhielm Wooldridge, The Brave Escape of Edith Wharton (Clarion 2010). Upon its release, the New York Times Book Review gave it high praise. If you are interested, please let me know, and I can send you a copy.

      Thanks for the information on the YA book; I will look for it in my library and bookstore first – save you the postage 🙂

    I read and enjoy all of your reviews. You have turned me on to many good reads. I admire your ability to read so many books so promptly.

    The picture (is that your lanai?) looks exactly like the hotel we just visited in Sausalito – The Inn Above Tide. I thought I was looking at our balcony!!

      Thanks – subscribed to yours too – look forward to more updates. Annapolis is my old town, and St. Michael’s day trips were the best.

    Love the idea of a book blog (say that quickly as many times as you can).

    Just read “Hotel on the corner of Bitter and Sweet” by James Ford. A new take on the Japanese internment camps. Begins with a Chinese boy and a Japanese girl and their story. The undercurrent for elder Chinese Americans who rejected Japanese Americans as the Japanese invaded their country.
    Sweet love story as well.
