Life & Times of a Word Nerd


I am a life-long reader with a taste in books that varies from one end of the fictional spectrum to the other.  I prefer historical fiction over non-fiction, but occasionally I'll wander into that department of the library (or virtual library), too.

As you can see, I read a variety of book types, but almost half of the books 
I read fall into the Fantasy genre.
I'm fortunate to live in a community with a fantastic library that not only keeps their book selection updated and relevant, but they keep area residents involved with literacy programs and events for all ages.

I invest myself into the characters I read about, so I prefer trilogies or longer series so that I don't have to say goodbye to so many characters.

I go through spells where I want to read heavier material, but then I regularly follow those spells up by immersing myself into Young Adult or Juvenile Fiction novels to give me time to clear my thoughts.

I regularly have others ask me for book recommendations, and so I try to keep an updated list of books that I am reading, have read, or plan to read.  You can check out links to those below.

You can also add me as a friend on Goodreads and stay up-to-date with me there, and please feel free to suggest any books to me that you have really enjoyed or that you think I might enjoy.  You can do so on Goodreads or through my Contact form here on the website.
