Welcome to Calliope's Coffee House the proprietor of this establishment is Jacquie Reaville better known as The Book Imp.

When I started this place it was primarily for book reviews and thoughts on all things literary. Well the book reviews are still here, but somehow it's grown into a place for me and others to practice short fictional writing and of course a place where I can give my thoughts and opinions on virtually any subject that might take my fancy.

Hope you enjoy your visit.

Just to add that I welcome comments, the more the merrier. They don't even have to be related to books or writing just go wild (not too wild though).

Permissions are set so that even anonymous users can answer - but comment moderation is in effect which means I get to say yes or no to letting them appear here.

Peace and Goodwill to all

Some nutcase is setting off fireworks, the neighbours upstairs sound like a heard of elephants on speed, the dogs are going mental, and I'm trying so very hard to be calm, rational and pleasant but I think it's a losing battle.

Ok here is the place I want to be, right now until at least January 2nd if not longer. I wish, I wish, I wish.


  1. Me too!! Here in Missouri today it was like 7 degrees overnight..and the high might be 25 today and that isn't counting the wind chill!! brrrrrr....Let's get to that beach and have a few margueritas!!

  2. Champagne and caviar and a rather nice waiter to feed it to me would be my preference HAH!

    Nice to hear from you, glad to be back and thanks for the comments Allison. Trying to read so I can do at least one review before 25th but we'll see.


I welcome comments so please feel free to leave a message, the site allows Anonymous users but comment moderation is in effect. Which means I get to vet what you've written before it appears on the page (Oh the power!).
