BookLore Reviewer
Paul Lappen

My name is Paul Lappen, and I live in Connecticut, USA. I am in my early 50s, single, and a lifelong, very avid, bordering on voracious, reader. I have been a freelance book reviewer since 1997 and have my own blog called Dead Tree Review. I am also one of those who practically lives in bookstores. Generally skipping the Best Sellers and New Releases, I am the one in the back of the store checking out the obscure and less well-known releases. My preference is for small press and self-published books (fiction and non-fiction), but I read practically anything other than poetry, romance and blood & gore horror.

As well as reviewing for BookLore I submit to several other sites on the Web, including, The Midwest Book Review, Librarything, Shelfari, Goodreads,, and Amazon and Barnes and Noble (of course).
