Introduce Yourself

Hello, all :)

I know there's already an 'Introduce Yourself' thread up on the main page but I thought I'd put one up  here in the Cafe as well (so it's just for us book readers). Please take a moment to drop in and say hi, maybe tell us a little bit about yourself....or just tell us what type of books you like to read.

!!

Note: Since our policy for uploading books has changed to not allowing books to be uploaded, the bar at the top was changed to reflect this to prevent confusion.    The policy is we do not allow copyrighted published books uploaded on this site.

To kick it off, my name is jessadia (jess/jessica)... i am currently in my second year of college working on a major in English and Literature. I live in the central US, not much goes on where I'm from which is how I got started reading. ;)

I love books and will read basically anything but am hooked on YA, and my favorite genre is dystopian.

Well, I'm Aerinn, or Irene, though, please don't use my rl name, I hate it.

I'm a workaholic, har har, I spend most of my work hours listening to books. ;D Then, when I get home I read them. What can I say, I'm an addict. And no, I don't want to cure this addiction. :)
I read just about anything, but I like YA, PR, UF, EF, Sci-fi the most! God, that was supposed to be a short list, ah well.
Anyhow, you can usually find me around here, with my nose buried in a book.
Cya around and Happy reading!  ;D

Hi, I am crazy about books LOL or Penny. I am 33 yrs old, native Floridian (US), a mom of 2 little boys, addicted to reading & to STP; totally love anything paranormal, vampires, fairies, wolves, and immortals...etc.

Never use to read much until I picked up Twilight by Stephenie Meyers> I am not ashamed to admit it. I read the series 3 times, I buy my Twilight Series movies ticket early and I am known for making the day the movie comes a special event. I have even taken the day off of work and go with my friends and stand in line :) LOL

Okay sure maybe now you know more about me than you wanted to.  :o LOL TMI right  ::)

I've always enjoyed reading but took a few years off after college.  Got a little burned out... Okay, a lot burned out.  But the Young Adult Dystopian explosion really helped suck me back in. Most of my reading happens at night, during the few hours my fiance is asleep and I have to "keep it down" ... which is fine, I can't really read when there are distractions anyway.  Have you ever tried reading with Project Runway on in the background?! everyone starts sounding like Tim Gunn:  "This looks matronly" ... "Okay well, Make it work" .. blah blah blah. LOL! 

My favorite generas are YA Dystopian, Science fiction, thrillers (come on, who didn't like Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol), and non fiction (mostly history and physics). And I'm sorry, but I really can't stand the whole cookie-cutter vampire romance thing. It's just not for me. =P

Hi guys! My name is Melissa, 26y, from Belgium. I've studied a long time and since last year i belong to the "working people". Not married & no kids.

The story of crazyaboutebooks could be mine  :) after Twilight i wanted to find another book that made me so obsessed and so my book addiction started. And now i'm here on a book forum :) my friends should know it  8)

I like different genres, but mostly dystopian, paranormal and here and there a good chick Lit.

@inferno: Congrats with your wedding! And good luck ;)

Hi I'm Debbie aka drypen. I'm forever married mom of 3 (30, 28, 26), grandmom of 3 (15yrs, 4yrs, 1yr). I live north of Seattle. I'm into textile crafts, gardening, skiing, swimming & lots more. Due to severe allergies I make my own shampoo, hair spray etc that my family loves. I read one of my dad's sci-fi books when I was around 7 & got hooked but will read pretty much everything.  :D

Well said Ash... I, unfortunately, have 3 kids and even though me and my boyfriend "aka: baby daddy" lol have been together for 10 years on Oct 4th we are still not married so I guess I did the exact opposite!!

@inferno- hope your wedding is spectacular and you have lots of fun on your honeymoon!  :)
