Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.


I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

A Lovely Cup of Coffee


My lovely Bodum coffee press arrived for review a couple weeks ago from CSN Stores. I received an email that the item has shipped and it arrived three -four days later - in Canada - which is excellent delivery time.

The product arrived in perfect shape. The Bodum itself was packaged in box as it would be straight from the shelf but it had been packed into the centre of a large square box that was filled with those packing bags filled with air so that it virtually floated its way across the border to me. Simple enough packaging to dispose of and all recyclable as well.

No complaints about about the press itself. It makes a lovely cup of coffee as expected and the colour is as I had expected as well. Not shown in the picture is the coffee scoop that comes with it; one scoop per cup. Easy to use and easy clean up, as well. Pull off the lid and the works are attached to the bottom and unscrew with a simple twisting motion and the parts can be washed quickly in the sink and even easier the Bodum is dishwasher safe. Love it!
