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

I forced myself to switch mostly to digital when I moved cross country, though I still have a few sentimental print copies. I also use the library! I work a few blocks from the big one downtown so I've been visiting that on my lunch hours.

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!

Goodness. Recently I've been on an urban fantasy kick, so Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels has been a frequent hit on my kindle. I've also picked up Health At Every Size, a fantastic non-fiction that revolutionizes our automatic assumption that being fat is unhealthy. I'm finally sitting down and finishing off A People's History by Howard Zinn, and I'm enjoying the alternative perspective. A Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliassotti is a novel done for NaNoWriMo a few years ago and is a steam punk urban fantasy I loved getting lost in. It's just been announced that two more will come out, which I'm very excited for! The fifth would be Astrid Amara's An Archers Heart, a gay fantasy novel that seems to take place in an alternate India. Wonderful character development and story telling; it manages to be a fantastic fantasy that happens to feature a gay couple more so than it being a gay fantasy, if that makes sense.

Introduction

Hello! I'm a relatively recent transplant from Texas. I'm a lesbian who loves reading, so I'm super excited about this group!
