Welcome to BookMarks, a site devoted to reading, writing, and quirky pursuits.  As both an avid reader and an obsessive ‘recorder’, I began a book journal in 1978, noting all of the books that I’ve read and eventually writing brief reviews of them.  When the mailing list for my annual Reading Lists exceeded 300 friends and family, it became clear that it was time to enter the modern age and create EpsteinReads.com.
