About meMagdalena Ball runs The Compulsive Reader. Her short stories, editorials, poetry, reviews and articles have appeared in a wide number of printed anthologies and journals. She is also the author of the poetry book Repulsion Thrust, the novel Sleep Before Evening, a nonfiction book The Art of Assessment: How to Review Anything and three other poetry chapbooks Quark Soup, and, in collaboration with Carolyn Howard-Johnson, Cherished Pulse and She Wore Emerald Then.

About my libraryI couldn't even begin listing it all -- it's massive (books everywhere...), and I give out/loan books very freely. As a reviewer, books are always coming in too, so it's in constant flux, like life. But I like the concept.
