About the blog

Hello and welcome to The Leisure Zone book review blog,

I'm Jacqueline Driggers, blog owner, lead reviewer, and head elf.  The Leisure Zone is a book review blog, but it didn't start out that way, and has evolved into solely a book review blog.  Below, you can view our avatars, from the current one at the top to the very first ones on the bottom.

This blog started out life as a review blog for facebook games and apps, but that incarnation was short lived. My natural love of books and discovery of ebooks caused me to reinvent this blog, and in September of 2012, this blog posted it's first book review. Since then, it’s been a work in progress, of me getting it just as I want it.

In October of 2013, I tweaked the review format that I was using; adding a 1-5 star rating, an overall content rating, and reader recommendations.  This was to provide our readers with a more well-rounded and comprehensive review. Along the way, I added book review request forms via google drive; and our facebook page has been active since the beginning of the blog.

In December of 2013, the blog took a new turn when I added a review team, and that was what prompted the renaming of the blog from JD's Leisure Zone to The Leisure Zone. The review team continued for a couple of years until I decided that a review team wasn’t working for me and did away with the team.

The blog had 2 reviewers, me and one part-time reviewer, but he has now bowed out from reviewing; it just wasn't for him. So now it's just wee lil' old me, and I'm always reading something. Want to keep up with what I'm reading? Visit my goodreads page on one of my other blogs:

For info about requesting a review, please visit the reviewer info page and the review request form page.

The blog’s motto is:
The Leisure Zone - home of candid, honest book reviews

Let me know if you have any questions.

Jacqueline Driggers

P.S. Sorry, but we are currently closed to review requests, as we have a sizable to read list.
