I'm a 30-something married lesbian with a thing for literary fiction and historical novels. But I'm also having a pretty torrid affair with gritty noir and some paranormal/supernatural fiction. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf.

Let’s talk about libraries. Libraries! “Oh, hello, are you a person? Great, you’ve met our qualifications. Please enjoy unlimited borrowing of any number of any books. Do we not have the book you seek? Let us know and we will buy it so that you can read it. You will owe us nothing. Stay as long as you want.” Libraries are like pleasant, real-life morphine dreams.
Let’s not forget: libraries save lives. My childhood and teen years made bearable by libraries and the fantastic librarians.
"There’s nothing quite as awesome as getting hooked on a great book series. You suddenly realize there’s a huge pile of content just waiting for you to love it. But starting in on a series, even one that’s popular, can be intimidating. It’s not always best to start at the beginning. Sometimes a series takes a few books to really get good. Other times, the best book for introducing new readers ends up somewhere in the middle. So where do you begin?”
