About meI'm an avid reader and lit blogger: Literary License (short reviews, real opinions): Stop by and join the discussion.

About my libraryMy reading is focused on contemporary fiction or memoirs, though I've never met a genre I didn't like (except chick lit). I enjoy reading many general non-fiction titles as well.
