Voracious. My favorite genres are mysteries, young adult, historical fiction, ‘chick lit’, classics, offbeat travel books, and nontraditional histories. I will read just about anything if it comes highly recommended or if it sounds interesting. I tend to pass on religious fiction, horror, and the social struggle-type books Oprah’s book club used to recommend.
How do you chose? Favorite authors include Elizabeth Peters, Sarah Shaber, Linda Fairstein, Jane Austen, Karl Shaw, and Joan Hess.
Through Violet Eyes by Stephen Woodworth (suspense/mystery/science fiction/paranormal); Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin (YA); 29: A Novel by Adena Halpern (fiction)
Hello! I’m a former newspaper reporter who has wandered into a career in the public sector. By joining the book club, I’m hoping to meet some new people and broaden my perspective through intellectual give-and-take.
