Welcome to Sonderbooks, a website about good books.
I'm Sondra Eklund, a voracious reader who, until last summer, worked at Sembach Library, on an American air base in Germany. On my job, fantastic new books went through my hands. I started Sonderbooks to tell my friends about the great books I'm reading. Sonder is a German prefix meaning "special."
I publish an e-zine approximately every month with reviews of the latest books I've read. You'll find over 1,000 books reviewed at this site, with links to order copies, give your own rating of the books, and discuss them with others who have read them. You can Subscribe to be notified every time I post a new issue. All back issues and back reviews are kept on the site, and you can access them via the different lists on the navigation bar.
I include a wide variety of books for all ages, but only review books I've actually read. Because of our excellent rental book program at Sembach Library, most of the books are recently published. Come to Sonderbooks when you're looking for a good book to read, for yourself or for your children.
Why do I write Sonderbooks?
Now I'm back in America and have begun a program to get a
second Master's, this time in Library Science. (The first one was
in Math--they aren't as different as you'd think!) After one
quarter completed, I'm loving my classes and am sure I found the right
calling to pursue. The only thing I don't like is that it's
cutting down the time I can spend on my website.
There are two ways you can support my website. One is to
follow my links to Amazon.com. If you buy a book I recommend, I
get a small percentage, but I also get a small percentage if you buy
anything else after going to Amazon by way of my site.
The second way is to make a donation via Paypal on my Donation page. Although I haven't made a
profit yet, this is not a nonprofit corporation, so donations are not
tax deductible. If I should receive donations beyond the cost of
hosting the website, I would use them to buy more books to review.
has become awfully time-consuming for something that's only a hobby, so
donations will help me keep the website going.
I now have a blog (weblog) at www.sondy.blogspot.com.
I'm posting stories and pictures from our family's travels in
Europe. Feel free to take a look.
Thank you for your support! Do let me know what you
the books I review! Thanks for visiting Sonderbooks!
I hope that my reviews and these books will give you some
pleasure and some food for thought.
