I feel that this group and I could be a really good fit. I LOVE to read, and I love to talk about what I'm reading.
Ah, that would have to be The Lord of the Rings. I first read it when I was 11, years before it became so popular; and I was profoundly morally and spiritually influenced by it. I love everything about it and in my (very) humble opinion, it just might be the greatest novel of the 20th Century. I think, actually, that it doesn't need my opinion!
I am reading several mysteries at the same time (yeah, I know. They're not exactly great literature! ;) I'm reading two abcdarian novels by Sue Grafton and two by J. A. Jance, who is all right but nothing like Grafton, whom I call "the Master." The thing is, I am a compulsive reader, happy to read ads and food labels if there is nothing else to read!
Sorry about the picture, or lack thereof! I have been wanting to join a book club for ages. I read voraciously, and I read everything that crosses my desk. I am an art and creative writing teacher and have published 3 novels on the Web.
