Welcome, Book Fans!

Just what the Internet needs - yet another Disney blogger! Whether you've come here on your own or you just did the Internet equivalent of making the wrong turn at Albuquerque, welcome to the Disney Park Book Reviews blog.

My goal with this blog is to share my thoughts on the wide variety of books related to the Disney theme parks that are out or were out there at one time. There's a lot out there to review, and more items appear all the time - guidebooks, souvenir guides, fan books, official and unofficial histories of the theme parks, attractions, and the folks involved in the creation of the parks and attractions, and so on.

I'm not going to limit myself to items that are currently available - I have a decent selection of books that are no longer in print and I have access to many more, so hopefully I can tell anyone reading this about books you can look for on eBay or at your favorite used bookseller. I'm also not going to limit myself to books with the official Disney seal of approval or books that are specifically about the Disney parks; there are books I have in my collection that deal with elements of the parks and resorts, and I'll be discussing those books - or at least the portions of the books that have to do with Disney - as well.

A fair warning in advance - I don't love everything that Disney does, and as long as I'm in my own forum, I'm not going to be shy about telling you what I really think. In other words, I may express opinions about the books I'll be reviewing that you may not agree with. But hey, it's a free Internet, and if you'd like to leave some constructive comments about the blog or express your own opinions about the books I review, by all means post them in the comments section of this blog. Feel free to post if you find other books related to the Disney theme parks that you think I should read and review, too - I'm sure that there are a lot of books out there that I don't know about!

Last but not least, let's talk about my posting schedule. My goal is to post a review every 1-2 weeks; unfortunately, the demands of my real job (you know, the one they actually pay me for) and my Disneyana-related hobbies isn't going to allow me to post daily. But I'll try to keep to the proposed schedule as much as I can, so keep checking back - I'll try my best to get some interesting information out to you.

Thanks, and I'm looking forward to posting on this blog!
