What is your favorite genre of literature? Do you buy your books at the bookstore or online? Do you utilize the library?

I love real paper, but I confess to be reading more and more on my Kindle. You can't beat it for convenience although I understand there have been studies that indicate a deficit in actual retention using digital readers. I DESPERATELY MISS BOOKSTORES. They were places to browse and get ideas. Books often called out to me and insisted to be read. Unexpected choices. It's different than knowing what you want and ordering it online... and then having some computer determine similarities you might like. The whole kinaesthetic (sp) experience is gone.

Tell us about the last (5) books you read that you found worthy of sharing with friends, family, co-workers or fellow passengers on the Metro!

Lorrie Moore's Birds of America; SPIN, the history of PR; And three books by Masters and Johnson because I'm writing on a show about them.

Introduction

Hi -- I'm a writer and looking for friends who like to read.
