RANDOMS: Welcome to Our Blogger Emily! (@emilyalburns)

We have a couple new additions to the Pure Textuality family.  Our first one is Emily!  Welcome Emily!!  Read on for Emily’s introduction!

Okay, so I have never written reviews before and I’m a little nervous about joining Pure Textuality’s blog. I am an avid reader as books are my way of escaping a few hours of the day. My husband knows when something is really wrong when I don’t want to read. My first loves were sci-fi and fantasy, Piers Anthony, Tamora Pierce, and Terry Brooks. I also read Dean Koontz when I was younger, probably 11 or 12. I can remember reading The Visionby candlelight because the power was out and having to stop because my imagination was creeping me out. I didn’t start reading romance until I was doing laundry for my granny and saw a bookcase with swap books. My love affair began that day with Julie Garwood’s Saving Grace. Now I read any romance genres, but I am currently in a paranormal phase. I typically buy books I have read and know I’ll read again, but if I’m wondering the aisles at the local bookstore and a cover or title jumps out and the blurb sounds good, I’ll grab it. If you see a woman taking pics of books with her phone, it’s probably me, because as much as I’d like to kick the kids out of their rooms to convert it into a library, money and okay, love for the little rascals, prevents me from it. So, I save the pics for later so I don’t forget that really awesome sounding book with the cute guy on the cover and the girl practically naked, because, let’s face it, that would cover way too many books! While I am partial to romance, I will read anything that sparks my interest. Okay, well, enough blah,blah,blah! On to more important stuff, like reading!

  1. Hi and welcome, Emily. I, too, love Julie Garwood. It sounds like we started reading the romances the same way. I was an historical romance junkie for a looooong time but finally spread my wings. Pure Textuality is awesome~~

    1. Good to know I’m not the only one. My ony problem is I tend to forget I took pics of books I didn’t want to forget until months later when I’m deleting pics. So sad. Lol thanks for the welcome 🙂

    1. Thanks! Yeah I used to jot them down on whatever piece of paper I had on me, mostly receipts. But just like the pics on my phone, I’d forget about them until I cleaned my purse out. Another tip, if you have a good library, is to reserve the book before it comes out. Its always nice to go check out and they give you a book you had on hold 2 months ago, best surprise ever!

      1. Emily, The Seattle Public Library has a great hold system, and I’ve used it often. But many times I will just buy the book, because I can’t wait 🙂
