About Me and My Blog

Feel free to contact me at randomlyreading2012@gmail.com

About Me:
My name is Alex.  I have been an avid reader since I was four, thanks to my parents.  I prefer historical fiction, but will read anything if it is good.  I am a former NYC public school teacher (4th grade) and
now I am working on an annotated bibliography of books written for your readers set in World War II, which just keeps growing.

Which brings me to...
My other blog, Alex's Bookshelves (formerly The Children’s War, is a very narrowly focused blog about books written for children and teens that depict how World War II impacted the lives of young people in one way or another.

On the other hand...
Randomly Reading is a smorgasbord, a literary buffet featuring a variety of genres - anything written for kids, teens, or adults that catches my fancy.

Review Policy: 
I am willing to read most books that I decide are appropriate for this blog.  Unfortunately, I can no longer accept review requests for self-published books.

However, of the books I do readn and review, my posts are always my own writing and my own opinions.  Sometimes, they often tend to be long and I probably include spoilers unintentionally.  I very rarely dislike a book completely and when I do, I probably won't write about it immediately.  Eventually, I will reread that and try to rethink my first opinion.  I learned to do this through expereince.
I do own a Nook and and Ipad and have apps for reading iBooks, Nook Books, Kindle Books and Blue Reader and, of course, PDFs.

Memes, Challenges:
I occasionally participate in some weekly memes and also some reading challenges.
