About meI don't have a lot of opportunity to read - maybe an hour a day if I'm lucky. I'm not exactly highbrow, so I don't read anything too intellectual, or even complicated. I like to be able to personally relate to the characters and the stories.

About my libraryPost-WWII western domestic fiction (no fantasy, not too far down the romance end of the spectrum) is my preferred genre, but I'm a little bit flexible :-)
