Hi there. My name is R.D. Brady and I am a reader. And by reader, I mean I may have a problem. I am not content unless I have a book sitting by my bedside. And when I find a really good book, I have been known to pretty much disappear into it. The world could implode and until I’ve reached that last page, I won’t notice.
Of course, that’s not my day job. I looked. There were very few jobs that would pay me to read the books I wanted to read. So, I got a Ph.D. in Criminology and became a college professor. As a professor, you still get to read the stuff you want, it’s just the stuff you want has to have a crime angle. So it slowed up my reading a bit.
The idea from this blog came from desperation. I have at times been desperate for a new book. I scour the racks, both physical and electronic, looking for the next book to get lost in. I have even googled: desperate for a good book. And I thought, hey, why not help someone else find that great book to get lost in? So thanks for visiting and enjoy the ride. (And if you have any criminology related questions, feel free to write. After all, once a teacher, always a teacher!)
