Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

Currently reading

Cole Sear: I see jerkish authors.
Malcolm Crowe: In your dreams?
[Cole shakes his head no]
Malcolm Crowe: While you're awake?
[Cole nods]
Malcolm Crowe: Jerkish authors like, on twitter? On Goodreads?
Cole Sear: Walking around stalking regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're jerks.
Malcolm Crowe: How often do you see them?
Cole Sear: All the time. Right now. This week. They're everywhere.


Note: no disrespect to the vast majority of reasonable and non-jerkish authors is intended. This one is for Kathleen Hale, John Grisham, Margo Howard, Richard Ford, Alice Hoffman, Richard Brittain (and if I end up in the hospital, we'll all know whodunnit) and the grandmother of all jerkish authors she-who-must-not-be-named-because-she-will-sicc-her-fans-on-me-but-who-wrote-that-really-popular-vampire-book.
