My favorite genre is fantasy and historical fantasy. I love sweeping epics with rich language. Juliet Marillier, Ann McCaffrey, and Stephen Lawhead are some favorites. But I do love a Well Written romance, too. I like Nora Roberts (natch!), Susan Wiggs, Judith Ivory, Linda Howard, Betina Krahn--oh, too many to remember. And I've found that I very much like mystery/thrillers by such writers as Lisa Jackson and Lisa Gardner.
I used to buy lots! But once I decided to cleanup our space with an eye toward eventually moving my mother and myself into a retirement situation, I stopped buying print books (well, OK, not Entirely, I slip up once in a while...). But I am purchasing books from Amazon on my Kindle. Because I work full time, paint (digital art), And write, I don't read as much as I used to. But...I have been purchasing historical fantasy on my Kindle and enjoying those when I can. And I've been purchasing 'how to' books about online marketing, etc.
Kindle Fire...just got it for my 64th birthday. Love it. So many books on hand and I can carry it everywhere. And...ah, I discovered "Game of Thrones" and I've been downloading the videos. That series is like eating potato chips! Can't stop.
Well, since I live in Plano, that section of the Metroplex is best for me. Also, because I work full time (until 6:00 every day), mid-week meetings would be too difficult. I wouldn't mind driving to perhaps the mid-cities for something really special (weekends only, of course).
I am absolutely open on this. I haven't done "High Tea", so must bow to the expertise of the group.
I live in Plano. Was in DARA about 15 yrs. Left it last year. I have 2 fantasy e-books (a duology), 1 self-pubbed romance and a 2nd ready to pub. I lovesocializing with readers and discussing books. This sounds like such a fun and interesting group!
The ladies were comfortable and enjoyable. A very nice group of people with a common love of books. Made for a nice experience.
