About meObviously I love books, so that's a given. I have found that my taste in books is constantly evolving - where once I was only reading Amish fiction and historical western romances, I now have found so many other authors that I adore! I just became involved in a reading circle at work, where my co-workers and I swap the books we read with each other. I guess this is how I have come to broaden my horizons so much and is also how I have become exposed to so many great authors that I would never have even began to read before. Although I still enjoy reading the Amish fiction, I have found so much more out there that I now have a vast selection to choose from whereas before I limited myself to certain genres. This reading circle is probably one of the best things that I could've become involved in as it has really changed the way I select the books I read.

Reading is a form of vacation for me...it takes me away to places where my imagination takes over and provides me with a way to decompress and to escape to a place where love ALWAYS wins and everything is always "Happily ever after". With the way the world is today, I enjoy actually reading books where the underdog comes out ahead, and the good guy really does win.

I listen to audio book cd's on the drive to work everyday as well. I find that audio books that are read with characterization are my favorites - the ones just read by a monotone reader do not work for me...I can do that myself!!

I collect cookbooks, and love anything to do with cookie decorating and cupcake making. In the perfect world I would own my own cookie/cupcake catering business.

Lastly, I absolutely love the Early Reviewers Program! I have received many great books that I have totally enjoyed and have shared with others so that they may delight in them as well! Oh..forgot to mention the Member's Giveaways - I have found so many great new books this way - thanks to all those people for sending me some great books to review - you all are so talented! I love finding new authors, and I always keep a list of every book I receive so that I will be sure to review it when I finish reading. Both of these programs are so awesome, and I am thankful to be part of them.

About my libraryI own a vast variety of all types of fiction books. I adore contemporary fiction, chick-lit, suspense,thrillers, dramas....you name it! Of course I love Amish fiction, but have since branched out to the books of Gillian Flynn, Lisa Kleypas , LuAnn Rice, Jennifer Weiner, Sherryl Woods, and I absolutely love the low-country stories by Dorthea Benton Frank. I love books based in the South, especially ones with snarky dialogue. And thanks to this site, I have broadened my span of genres and now can say I love many different types of books, and no longer am locked in the narrow genres that I was before. I still don't enjoy sci-fi or fantasy, nor do I read erotica or political fiction.
Besides reading, I love to cook and bake and have over 1500 coookbooks also. I have not listed them here on LibraryThing as it seems like a very overwhelming task at this time! I hardly ever watch tv, as I have my own library at my disposal at any time, and I have found that my imagination is normally MUCH better than a movie anyway. And last but not least...I am a kindle junkie - you will rarely find me without my kindle and I love that I can carry my large collection with me wherever I go.

As I mentioned before, I love finding new authors to read and I enjoy writing reviews, so please feel free to contact me if you would like for me to review a book for you. I regularly submit to Amazon, Goodreads, and here on Librarything, and I also submit my reviews to a blog where I am a guest reviewer as well.

I have a love/hate relationship with my spam folder too.
Here is the coupon code: ZU65B. Thank you so much for your interest, and I hope you like it!

Take care!
Hi Tina,

I sent out an e-mail on Sept. 10 with the coupon code for the book. It is an e-book that you can download for free (with the coupon) from Smashwords. Did you get the e-mail? If not, let me know. I have no problem resending it, or sending you a copy if you don't have a Smashwords account.

Thanks so much for letting me know and take care!
Hi Tina,
Thanks for leaving a comment to let me know you enjoyed A Crazy Homecoming. I'm SO pleased! And thank you for taking the time to review it--it warms an indie author's heart. :)
Hi, you're a winner in the giveaway for A Crazy Homecoming by Cate Baylor. The shipment of book copies took longer than I expected. They came yesterday, so I mailed your copy this morning through 1st class mail. Thanks for participating!

Cheers,
beccataylor (writing as Cate Baylor)
Aw, thanks, Tina! That's very nice of you. You have some great books, yourself!

Lisa :)
