About carstairs38
E-mail me at: carstairs38-AT-hotmail-DOT-com

I'm an accountant by day, but I love to consume pop culture by night. I read mysteries and prefer the cozy variety but occasionally venture into darker waters. I also have a CD collection made up mostly of Christian music. I have lots TV shows I follow on a regular basis, and TV on DVD sets are going to be the death of me, at least financially. I also watch lots of movies, especially Disney, and am thrilled to announce that I have all of their animated classics on VHS and DVD and am now working on Blu-Ray. Did I mention I'm an obsessive collector?

I've always liked recommending what I've enjoyed to my friends, and I started reviewing online in 2001 as a way to reach a bigger audience. I hope that by looking at my reviews, you'll find something new that you'll enjoy.

Of course, since I'm choosing the items I read/listen to/watch and review, most items will be a 4 or 5 star review. And, obviously, these are my opinions. Hopefully, looking at these will give you a sense of how your tastes line up with mine so I can help you find something new.

Looking for the review links I used to keep on my profile page? Turns out that Epinions is serious when they limit our long biographies to 100,000 characters. I ran over that , so I set up a blog to use for the review links if for no other reason than I love the easy access having all these links at my finger tips allows me when I'm looking for something in particular.

So, if you are looking for something I've written, head over to my review link blog and use the categories over on the side to quickly find what you want to read.

Or, if you just want to browse a few categories, follow these links:

Book Reviews
Movie Reviews
TV Show Reviews
Music Reviews
Travel Reviews
Ornament Reviews

These are just my biggest categories of reviews. In the column on the right, you'll find many more categories of reviews I've written.
