About Me

It never ceases to amaze me how many doors have opened up for me since I started reviewing the books I read. Publishers now send me free books to read and review. Authors contact me. Kind folks at Lunch want me to join their little slice of the internet. And it has helped me to add to the conversations in any social situation. I've never been to … more

Chicago Lightning : The Collected Nathan Heller Short Stories
The short story isn't something that I normally read, which is unfortunate. It's a great art, where the author has to convey quite a bit in a compressed time frame. Because of this, some aspects …
Verso Prologue Case Cover for Kindle Fire, Red
I've had three separate covers for my Kindle Fire. Two were black nylon cases that worked well, kept the Kindle safe and secure. One was a hardcore cover, best suited for the military deployments. …

Thanks so much for joining the Cafe Libri Lunch Community. Hopefully, you will be inspired to write reviews or quick tips. Otherwise, feel free to sit back, relax, and enjoy others' reviews. Don't feel shy about rating or commenting on them either. The writers really appreciate the feedback! Let me know if you have any questions! 

Let me know if you need any help moving over reading related reviews to the community. :) 
April 23, 2010
@Adrianna I think I have nearly 200 book reviews on Lunch. Certainly, you don't want me to add them all to the community, do you? :-)
April 23, 2010
(laughs) You can choose to move any of your reviews you feel will fit in the Cafe Libri Community. It's a no pressure community, so it's a matter of whether you want all 200 book reviews over there or not. Also, you are always welcome to move them to other communities at a later date. Can't wait to read more of your reviews in the future!
April 23, 2010
Ok, I've added several of my more recent reviews as they show more experience with the "art" of reviewing (I think). At the very least, they are more thoughtful. I also added a couple of my favorite books and several from first time authors that I believe should be given some more focus. I look forward to and welcome the criticism.
April 23, 2010
Thanks, Gregg! Appreciate your contributions to the community. :) Thanks for adding some authors and books as well. I can put one up as a featured topic in the next newsletter. Just let me know if you have a preference. I hope you have fun in the community. I'm sure the members will enjoy reading and rating your reviews, too!

One of the reviews I am most proud is the one I did for "Spark:How Old Fashioned Values Drive a Twenty-First Century Corporation" by Frank Koller. The author contacted me after seeing my review hit Amazon and thanked me for it and told me that I understood the message. Made my day. :-)
April 24, 2010
I'd like to post this to the Community, and get feedback from the members: http://planetlotus.org/6a1634 How do I go about accomplishing that task?
April 24, 2010
Thank you for the review title. I'm going to save it, and feature it in a later newsletter, so it gets etxra notice from the other community members. :)

Now, as far as the link, did you want me to add it as a topic to the community? Then, members can read it and rate it. Otherwise, you can post the link in a discussion thread, and in my next newsletter, I can ask members to comment on the discussion thread to give you feedback. Which option are you most interested in?
April 25, 2010
I'd like to post it to get some feedback. I'd like to know others thoughts on eReaders, and if I am way off in left field somewhere. I looked at the Discussions, but don't know where I should put it. There are "only" 4 Discussion Topics right now. So, how and where do I post it? Thanks for your patience with me.
April 26, 2010
No problem, Gregg! I will go ahead and open a discussion thread for you on the topic of "e-readers." When I send out the next community newsletter, I will point people to the discussion thread to give you some feedback. You can also feel free to post the article as a topic in the community, and then write a review on it. Also, don't hesitate to ask other members to check out the thread. Here's the link!

@robertrogoff We need to add some non-California data points (restaurants and such), too. :-) Thanks for reading my reviews.
August 01, 2009
Enjoy your reviews. i am an Eastsider (Shaker) and its nice to see some serious minded stuff here.
July 21, 2009
@devora: Thank you for the kind words. 200 book reviews in a year? Seems a bit far fetched for me, but I won't stop reading and reviewing. :-) Thanks for the heads up on the new tag. I'll try it out on the next review.
July 20, 2009
I can't believe you have 164 reviews already!  Aiming for 200? :P  I know that you've write a lot of book reviews, Gregg, so I wanted to let you know about the new New York Times Bestsellers tag that Lunch has rolled out, which makes it simple to rate data points, and to discover new books and reviews, so give it a go when you have the chance! :)
