About Me

I am asked about my name (Cheminne) all the time. I was named for a character in a book. My mother was reading a novel about El Cid by Dorothy Heiderstadt that included a reference to El Cid's wife, Ximena (trust me, the pronunciation is close to the same, despite the spelling). I like to think that started my obsession with books.
My favorite quote says it all: "So many books, so little time." Well, that quote and one of my own: "Life is too short to read bad books." I won't waste my time on Read.Eat.Think. with reviews of books I don't like. What's the point?
For more about how I got my start with this blog, go to the Nourishing Reads post.

Info for authors, publishers, publicists
I do accept books, galleys, and PDFs for review. However, my acceptance of any book materials is not a guarantee that I will be able to read and review your book. I also can’t guarantee that you will receive a completely positive review. Since my motto is that “life is too short to read bad books,” there’s a good chance that if your book is reviewed, it’s because I generally like it.
Please note that I read most any genre, including children’s books and young adult books. My favorite genres are fiction, history, biography, mystery, historical fiction, and non-fiction. But I usually do not read or review romance novels, religious titles, self-improvement, or business titles. I want to read for my own pleasure, too, and those don’t fit my idea of a good time.
I am also interested in interviewing authors, book publishers, editors, professional chefs, and others involved in the business of reading or cooking.
I do not accept payment for reviews, and all comments/content are my own.
