About meHi! I'm really Nancy, and I am one of those people who would rather read than eat. I devour books and have no problem working my reading schedule around my busy life, even if it means staying up into the wee hours to read.

My other interests revolve around my family life, freecycling, and trying to put my social conscience to work whenever I can. I think mean people suck.

The picture is "Hello Cthulhu," a mix of Cthulhu meets Hello Kitty. This is how my warped brain works. Another example: on my first cruise ever, I left a copy of The Poseidon Adventure on a deck chair for someone to find.

I'm a reader, not a writer, English major or professional critic. My ideas are my own, for better or worse, and I often find myself swimming against the tide of public opinion. I don't consider that a negative -- I tend to march to my own drum in the book world.

Feel absolutely free to contact me about anything and drop in and visit my online reading journal!

About my libraryI truly don't have any clue as to how many books I actually own. I have them literally in every room of my house and constantly continue to add more.

I don't normally read romance of any kind, self-help, or chick-lit; rarely are there trendy or young adult novels on my shelf. I absolutely love European crime fiction and novels in translation, as well as British fiction, and then there's the fluffy stuff: steampunk, Cthulhu-ish weird-fiction books, fantasy, and other things I read when the brain needs a rest.
