Introduce Yourself
« on: September 28, 2011, 10:34 AM »

NO BOOK POSTINGS ARE ALLOWED ON THIS SITE

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.

!!

Warning ! Please do not post any personal information that may be used to identify your person outside of this site, such as your place of residence, age, or real name. This information may be used with harmful intent.



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.

@anonymouspriness-
Thank you! It's nice to hear good things every once in a while, I know a lot of STP users are no fan of us 'Mods' so it's nice to be appreciated every now and again.

What's your favorite tv show? (u didn't mention the name....)

hi jess, real name is penelope though you can call me cess that's short for princess (that's my grandpa's pet name for me) OMG imagine that long answer to your simple question LOL!  ;D (and now i'm no longer anonymous  :-[

and one of my most fave tv series is the NCIS but right now I'm hooked with the Big Bang Theory gang! I can't help loving sheldon   :)

P.S. Congratulations

Guess im just as late :)
My name is Jessica and i live in South Africa. I have loved books from a very young age and did not know about STP till three months ago. I invested in a ebook reader as it was getting too expensive to keep buying the books from the store (even though the best smell in the world is the smell of a new book) and they did not always have what i wanted - especially since SA gets everything 6months late. STP is such an amazing site, i have been introduced to so many new books and am so grateful to you all who post them up. I am 21 years old and study psychology and communications. I love paranormal, fantasy books, my favourites being the Inheritance series(eragon) and The green Rider novels. If any of you have any suggestions on great reads then please share with me.  Happy Reading!!!!!

My name is Kallisti and I'm 26 years old. I've been addicted to books since I taught myself to read as a child. I generally read at least one book a day, even if it means going short on sleep. I started off reading straight Fantasy, but eventually I "ran out" of books I actually wanted to read...so I've branched out some to Sci-Fi, Mystery, Romance, Young Adult Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, etc. I'll read just about anything that has a hint of 'other' and a happy ending**. When I can't find new books that I want to read, I re-read old books. That's especially helpful now, because I moved to a very rural area in Southern Indiana and don't have any local friends yet except for my husband, my dogs, and the characters in my books.
Thanks,
Kallisti


**A happy ending is the most important criterion I have for a book. If I wanted to get depressed, I'd read the news

Welcome jecca90 and kallisti93..hope u both come to love stp as much as i do. :) take advantage of all the newbie help, trust me when i say that the help is real, and not  just rules from some members who think they know all. Although some of them truly r like goddesses :) pm me if u need anything!

Kallisti93.. i taught myself how to read too, my mom always tells a story about me being 2 1/2 yrs old, and just bring out a book (curious george) and just reading it to  her. I never believed her till my daughter did the same thing at age 3, she just busted out hop on pop and started reading to me, and has been reading ever since.just like her mommy, she has a libary card and a 'big girl' wallet to put it in. :) so freakin cute ;)
I spread smutt and sexy joy in the name of my Smutt Queen Blu ;)

Ash Vamp-
For me, I always wanted to do what my older brothers did, like when I was 6 and decided that since my eldest brother could drive, I should too. So when I was three, I marched into the library and asked for kid's beginner books, checked out a stack, and was reading to myself by the end of the week. Or so my parents tell me.
I don't know what I'd do without reading. Honestly, if I had to choose between reading and my wonderful husband, I don't think that my husband would win! And he's practically perfect in every way!  ;]

Hi all my names Rhonda I'm 32 and I live in Michigan with my workaholic husband and 3 sons. I've been a book junkie as longs as I can remember. I got hooked on Stephen King at 12 and never looked back. Now I read mostly UF and PNR with a little YA thrown in. But sense finding this site I'm also a STP addict.  :)  it's been wonderful reading and meeting everyone.  Thanks.

I have been here a while and for some reason have missed this! Note to self: Must be more observant!

I go by jollygreengiant1 - (Ho Ho Ho Green Giant) or Treyci. I am another "Forever Married Mom of 3" ALSO I am a Twilight Convert myself. My oldest son says it is his fault b/c he gave me the first book for my birthday. NOW you can't find me without a book somewhere on me.....car, purse, camera bag, hand??  HAHA.

I used to think my sister was crazy when she would lay around and read all the time and now I have become her!  I even keep a journal of EVERYTHING I have read!

I am a photographer by trade but also buy/sell books. I am a Southern girl (USA) by birth and my reading preference is anything ROMANCE as long as it has a Happy Ending!

most of the people here if not for their husband who gave them their books it's their bf, but your son giving you a book and it's twilight! he is darling! :)

Hello Everyone,

I'm a newly addicted member of STP from the Philippines. I'm a little late bloomer when it comes to fiction, which I think is a good thing since a lot of books we're piled up for me to read. Eversince i finished my first book a couple of years after college i've never been without a book and Not very long I found myself in a point of patiently waiting for new books of my favorite authors to be written and published. Something good comes out of waiting though, I discovered Genres I never thought i'd be interested in- My first love is Romatic Suspense then i discovered Historical Romance and recently I enjoyed Paranormal Romance and YA. Because of STP i've got more books than i could ever read--definitely no more waiting!

I'm glad i found this site. It's nice to not just find books that you've been looking for in a long time and books that you've been waiting for all this time but to also know and help other readers to find book that they've been longing for and that i think what makes STP addictive.
