About


I’m Zebulon “McChimp” Green- an all around bibliophile and a semi-profesional pirate.

I have worked many years in the most fantastic little bookshop by the sea, Indigo Books. Although I am out of the bookselling industry at the moment I still wish to spread my love of reading to any that will listen.
My goal is to keep book reviews short and simple, more of a wink and nod or teaser for the book. I don’t want to give too much away, All I want to do is intrigue you enough to pick up a fantastic book that you wouldn’t have otherwise read.

I do not receive any compensation for my reviews, and everything I write is entirely my own opinion.

If you like the look of any of the books I discuss please contact your local independent bookstore or library to get a copy.

    Thanks for the subscription. The blog looks interesting; I like the attention to popular and kids lit. Good luck with it and have great day.

    What a coinky-dink! I just tweeted the other day how I felt like I needed a friend named Zublon in my life.

    Glad you liked my post. Since you a semi-professional pirate and lover of books, you might want to read the law post I wrote on Golan v. Helder which has upheld a law retroactively affording foreign works previously in the public domain US copyright protection. The law is a bit dry (OK its dry as burnt toast), but it is rare you find a funny footnote in a Supreme Court Opinion, and one related to pirates. Funny how the shoe was on the other foot at one time.

    dear bibliopirate,
    I am a fellow bibliophile. Your concept of the short personal review to whet the appetites of your blog readers is wonderful.

    A relative just gave me a ‘Kindle’ as a gift…I am still undecided. Interesting times:

    I mourned the loss of a local bookstore but understand the increasing appeal, convenience, extensibility and connectivity of ‘new media’

    kind regards,
    unknown blogger
