Maria Schneider (BearMountainBooks) Well, here I am. I have a blog where I babble about books, gardening, my cats, recipes and whatever strikes me.

I love to read and generally split my reading between urban fantasy (paranormal mysteries) and cozies. I've been know to throw in a thriller or plain fantasy now and then too!

Barb (Dewbie) | 3 comments My name is Barb D and I'm from the nw burbs of Chicago. I don't have a blog though. I do the majority of reading on my two e-readers. The nook touch and I just bought the new amazon fire. I never leave home without one. My favorite books to read is cozy mysteries however I do read easy romances, etc .. just about anything that's not overly graphic.

I really like it a lot. Downloading library books is a breeze. The kindle fire is a joint e-reader for both my husband and myself. Every once in a while my husband has to spend the night where he works at so he can take the kindle fire with him and play games, check the internet, etc without taking the laptop. Other than that ... IT's MINE. Yea!!

I'm glad to hear you are enjoying it, Barb. I have the Nook Color and downloading from the library is so much fun - free books!

Adriana Hi I'm Adriana from Florida. I have one blog that I started not too long ago. I love young adult, children, and dystopian books. I don't think I've ever read a cozy mystery but I happened to stumble upon a list of it and I thought I would love to read these!

message 18: by Carol (new)

Carol | 5 comments Hi all, I'm Carol from Maryland. I don't blog and I spend waaay too much time (and money) using my Kindle Fire which I love. I'm a big fan of cozies and look forward to seeing what others are reading. Since I'm a notorious "overachiever" I'm going to limit myself to the "snoop" level! :-) Happy Thanksgiving.

Denise Jo | 7 comments Hi. I'm Denise from Central Florida. Got a message about the group, and here I am. I love all types of books, except horror and sci-fi. To be honest, I had to do a google search to see exactly what a "Cozy Mystery" was, and guess what. I fit the bill. ha ha..
Just today I started reading Janet Evanovitch's new book - Explosive Eighteen.

Welcome Denise! I used to love reading the Janet Evanovitch books. I still do, but I'm pretty behind on all of them.

Denise Jo | 7 comments Hi Yvonne. I only like her Stephanie Plum series, and this one seems to be pretty good so far. Any recommendations would be great.

I mostly read her Stephanie Plum series too. I've read some of her romances, but I haven't read them in a long time. The Stephanie Plum ones are my favorites.

Beth (BethsBookReviews) | 2 comments Hi!

I'm Beth from Connecticut. I blog at BethsBookReviews.com.

I'm going for the Super Sleuth level and am chomping at the bit to start! :) Hopefully this will be the motivation I need to get reading all those food related cozies I have languishing on my shelves! And perhaps even some off my Kindle!

I'm going to start with the latest Agatha Raisin though (As the Pig Turns).

Thanks for starting this Yvonne!

Thanks!

The Agatha Raisin series is one of my favorites, especially on audio as the reader is so good. You really must try it! :)

Wynn | 4 comments Hi, I'm Wynn, now I live in New Jersey, but 25 years ago, I lived in Orlando area for a few years. I found this group because I'm also a stitcher and I was following links from a stitching board to a blog (or 2) and I enjoy reading, and this looks like a fun way to start the New Year!
