Huw Evans (DocHuw) | 140 comments Hi to all of you book-fiends out there. I was brought up reading and now cannot read anything like as much as I would want; things like work and family get in the way, all the time. I have two types of books; good ones and bad ones. Writing is too much of a privelege to be forced into restrictive pigeon holes (even though we all try)

Scarlett Rains | 21 comments Hi everyone, I'm Scarlett Rains (a GR author). I've been out of touch (recent surgery) and have a long recovery ahead. I love to read! I collect the works of my favorite authors and usually will re-read their books. My taste is pretty eclectic, but I'm not really into vampires or fantasy (Except, I love me some Harry Potter!). I look forward to some good book rec's from all of you so I have plenty to read as I recover.

Hi Sayie. Welcom! :) Do you like a particular genre, or do you like a little of everything?

Hi Scarlett! Thanks for the warm welcome. That's a great question. Let's see ~ Jane Austen, Chris Bohjalian, Joyce Carol Oats, Anna Quindlin, Gail Tsukiyama, & Herman Wouk to name a few!


message 1123: by Scarlett (new)

Scarlett Rains | 21 comments Hi Lynne! I am a Jane Austen freak! I enjoy J.C.Oats as well but am not familiar with the others, though Bahjalian and Wouk are ringing bells (through my pain-killing fog). I'll check them out! Have you read any Carol Atkins? (May be Adkins- I'm in bed with my foot up and can't get to the book!) She wrote 'One Good Turn' and other stories. One Good Turn just ran on PBS. It was wonderful, as are her books. She explores the personalities of her characters and affords them more depth than is typical. You might like her work. She has a writing style that I'd like to think is like mine. ...That could also be the pain meds talkin! :)


message 1124: by Scarlett (new)

Scarlett Rains | 21 comments @Lynne, let's try this again before you frustrate yourself trying to find Carol Atkins/Adkins...should be Kate Atkinson! My prior message is a great argument against pain meds! :)

message 1130: by Bonnie (new)

Bonnie (jerseyjezebel) | 3 comments Hi, everyone! My name is Bonnie and I absolutely love to read! I've been a member of GoodReads for a while but never got up the courage to post anything.

I started reading when I was 3 and just never stopped! I am severely hearing impaired, and when I was little we didn't have closed-captioning on our TV so I couldn't watch it. We didn't get closed-captioning until I was about 10, so up until then reading was my main source of entertainment. I think I read every single book in the children's section of the library!

Now I'm in my 30's and I have a Kindle, which I absolutely love to death! I have spent quite a lot of time in the hospital in the past couple of years so having the Kindle has been great!

I read mainly sci-fi/fantasy books but I have a weakness for chick lit as well...Jennifer Weiner type stuff. Right now I'm reading 1Q84 for the book club discussion on these boards. I hope I'll have something insightful to contribute! See you all soon! Feel free to add me as a friend.

I made a new introduction thread because this one is getting really difficult for people due to so many pages. I hope everyone re-introduces themselves in the new thread. :)
