About meI have always read since I was a child, although during my teen years I neglected books in favour of music, clothes, shopping and boys! I started reading seriously again after my A-Levels and went to univeristy in Liverpool to read for a degree in American Studies with English Literature, therefore reading many authors I'd never heard of, others I had, and some that I really should have read! After a number of jobs I finally settled on a career in library work, completed the relevant MA qualification, and spent just over three and a half years working in an academic library in Cumbria. I now work for a book selection company, so I spend all day choosing the books that go into public libraries! I choose the adult fiction books for a number of counties in the UK, so I now have a veritable knowledge of all the great books that are coming out - so I can have first dibs in my local library, or buy them from our lovely showroom (with the much appreciated staff discount of course!). I enjoy being able to find out about authors who are up and coming, and can also look for books that suit my reading style.

About my libraryI love buying books, although I am starting to use my local public library again, as I don't have any space for any more books at the moment! I read a mixture of authors and genres, I love a good 'intelligent' author/book, but I also enjoy a good mass-market thriller. I also read alot of teen-fiction, as there is some great stuff out there that suits adults as well as teens. There are so many other books I have read that I can't remember, or I can only remember the cover, so I'm sure there's many more to add. I like most genres, although I have to admit I'm not a chick-lit or family saga type of girl!

Sure. I'd love to-

The circus itself was such a spectacular wonder, each tent a love poem from one magician to another. But, outside the circus, the tone was much darker. The fierce competition between the two mentors, the love hate relationship between the mentors and apprentices. Which did you find harder to write, the amazing, imaginary shows going on in each of the tents within the circus, or the darker, "real world."?
RE: question for Erin Morgenstern

Where did you find inspiration for the amazing tents and exhibits in your traveling circus? They are so fantastical that they seem to be the work of dreams - how did you 'see' them, and do you think the film adaptation of your novel will be able to adequately recreate them?
I would love to see a movie for The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters! It is such a good book, but I think you're right - there is so much to pack into just a couple hours. I've started The Dark Volume, but I'm not sure when I'm going to have time to finish it LOL.

I'm very excited about my Orpheus paper; the scary part is that I have to finish it in the next couple months. At least it's just for my MA, but I am hoping to turn into a PhD dissertation.
omg thats so cool! I love sitting outside and reading! Its my favorite thing in the whole world to do, besides maybe go on roller coasters..maybe. Anyway, thats cool I havent heard of that book, i'll have to check it out. And your right, it WAS so nice out this weekend! omgsh i love sunshine and warm weather. Sunshine actually releases neurons in my brain and makes me happy i think because it always makes me happy esp. when i have a book. Well i've said too much - i tend to ramble on. sorry.
