Mark’s Reviews

Looking for a good read?  I write a weekly book review (well, almost weekly) for The Daily News of Galveston County.  (Formerly the Galveston County Daily News) My one rule in choosing the books I review? They have to be worth reading.  I may not always agree with the author, but I think the author has presented something worth thinking about or worth knowing.  So the next time you are looking for a book to read, you might try one of these.

The link takes you to my Daily News of Galveston County  reviews.  If I have reviews for other publications online, I will link those, too.  I update this page every time a new DNGC review is published, so check back every Monday.
