A passionate reader. A sometimes writer.
Ever since I learned to read, books have been my constant companions. My first furniture purchase as an adult was a bookshelf. The bed I bought 2 months later when I could afford it. And so I would have a comfortable place to read.
I read everything. To be more accurate, there isn’t much I won’t read. Perhaps a technical treatise on string theory I would pass on, but I happily read books of just about every genre.
I do have favorites, though. Childrens’ books and young adult novels are a favorite genre, as is fantasy/science fiction and popular fiction. I think these genres collide and coalesce in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, which happen to be particular favorites of mine.
Lately, I have been enjoying steampunk and speculative fiction, and some fascinating non fiction. I am a member of 2 terrific book groups that read fabulous and not-so-fabulous books, but the discussions are always superb. I will often write about book choices from these groups, the AMBC (Awesome Members Book Club) – and they are AWESOME – and my other equally awesome and passionate reading group which I will refer to as the PTA Refugees.
Please feel free to message me about books you are reading, or wonder if I have read. I am always on Goodreads, and you are welcome to look for me there.
