Melinda loves reading and writing are two of my favorite hobbies of all time. Four years ago I was introduced into another world of E-books. Ever since I have read every ebook I can and been introduced to such fabulous authors in the Ebook world. Even when I am 80 I will still be reading, probably my prescription pills, but I will be reading. I also review for two other sites that have helped me learn that I can combine my two hobbies to something that is dear to my heart.

 

I live in Marin County California with my 3 furfaced children commonly called cats:  Miss Molly (15), Miss Ginny (13) and the not-so-little Mel (4).  My current "day" job is with my local police department with high intentions to move into dispatch within the next 6 months.  My daily exercise includes a walk to the local duck pond which has an island in the middle I fondly call "Avalon".  A reader my whole life, I'll read just about anything and do read everything down to milk cartons and toothpaste tubes but with a preference for time travel and paranormal stories.

 

The written word for me is a way of life as well as a passion or rather an obsession I have been told, and art is another. Being a desktop publisher, computer graphics artist as well as an editor I thrive in worlds of my own making and of others. Real life intrudes as it must, I have 4 daughters and 5 cats that keep me grounded and on my toes. In between work and my children I do have hobbies which donít get near enough of my time or attention, writing is one, the other is the study of herbal healing.

 

Lives in the South with her boyfriend and one Hell Hound named Jackson. An avid reader, she switched to e-books after amassing a paperback collection of enormous proportions. In between working at a library and reading and fixing everything the hellhound destroys she is also attempting to put her own ideas for a book on paper.

 

It was a dark and stormy night . . . oh, no, it was 5 p.m. in the hot southwestern desert of the United States.  Somehow I survived seven different environments I called home, discovered e-books, and life hasn't been the same since.  I've taught all grades except K, 1st and 5th and am happy to be the mother of three.  I spend my spare time either reading, writing or taking classes with such names as "Introduction to Military Intelligence".

 

Hating to sound redundant, but going to anyway, I, too love books, particularly romance and sci-fi (can we say, escape?).  The world of ebooks was recently opened to me, and this explorer loves it.  I have a son, a crazy dog and a law practice of my very own (the main reason for the escape).

 

I am a single mother of a wonderful 11 year old son.  I read pretty much everything romance I can get my hands on.  I escape the world into the story and spend hours immersed in the story line.  During my off time, I love to cook, knit and spend time playing games with my son. 

 

Hello my name is Nicole Harvey, I am a proud mother of 3 children,Branny 14,Rebecca 10,and David jr. 16 months. I am also married to my High school sweetheart for 16 years. I am 35 years old. I was born and raised in Portland Oregon. I grew up loving to read from the age of 6 when I told my mom and dad "one day I will write books and be able to buy  you that great big house you and dad deserve". I grew up with books being my savior thru hard times. I am so very happy to be a part of this wonderful family of readers thank you Nicole.

 

Eclectic and quirky by nature, if you don't find me with a book in my hand, you might find me rocking to a mixture of tunes from Linkin Park to Evanescence, or checking out the latest foreign film to capture my attention. Single mother of one, obsessed with everything Cirque du Soleil offers and can watch tennis for hours on end. Lover of all types of books with erotica being my favorite.

 

I love books. I donít mean that it is a nice hobby to sit and read. I love to read. It is the best time I have, other than seeing my friends. The wonderful thing about books is that you can transport yourself into the world that the author has created for a short time and forget about the problems and the worries in your own life. My favorite type of book is a good Mystery, Horror, Romance, or Romantica.
