Amanda Nelson is a staff editor at BOOK RIOT, a bookish news and commentary site, and the community manager of its sister site, FOOD RIOT. She is also the sarcastic-yet-earnest voice behind the blog Dead White Guys, Etc. She has a Bachelor's in History from Virginia Commonwealth University, which she mostly uses to sound smart at parties.

Greetings and salutations! I'm Amanda. I'm married and have one cat and a set of identical twin boys named Rhett and Atticus. I love the following: literary tattoos, irony, those cats that look like little leopards, castles, earl gray tea, couch naps, Ella Fitzgerald's voice, Jesus, rain when there are no clouds, and rose perfume. I do not love: post-modernism, fake nails, being sticky, small dogs, the color yellow and therefore bananas, fast food, hammocks that are made of rope instead of canvas, and my husband's driving.

About my libraryI read an eclectic mixture of classics, modern literary fiction, history, theology, and fairy tales. While I would love to have a library full of leather-bound and obscure tomes, it's mostly just Dickens paperbacks. All books in my "Your Library" collection are books I physically own and have around here somewhere. Check "own on Nook" collection for my owned e-books. The tag "arc" stands for Advanced Review Copy, which are...advanced review copies...I get from publishers.
