heatherHello, hello!  I’ll start by saying I HATE “introductions”… I feel like a geek.  Anyways!  That said, my name is Heather.  I started reading, oh, in (approx) 2003-2004.  I was at work and bored; ok, I know, my ex boss would be thrilled to hear that, right?  BUT, I worked in childcare, ALL my kiddos were down for naps, I had my curriculum for the month done, and I had cleaned my classroom.  There really wasn’t anything else for me to do.

I asked someone to cover me for a minute so I could run to my car where my daughter had left her copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.  I went back to the classroom and started reading it.  Can I just say nap time flew by?!?!?  I started the book just to have something to do, but found that I loved reading!  When I was done with Harry Potter (not that same day), I ran to Target and grabbed a Nicholas Sparks book (dont remember which one) and read that.  That became my routine from then on….I’d finish a book, run to Target at lunch and buy another!  I’ve been a book junkie ever since!

While my preference runs toward the contemporary romance novels (Jill Shalvis, Debbie Macomber, etc.), I DO read other genres occasionally.  I love ALL the Harry Potter books, the Twilight series, just finished my first “paranormal romance” book, and I also read the occasional thriller or historical fiction (you MUST read Cane River by Lalita Tademy).

And, that’s about it!  Oh, well, I WILL add that I do NOT like ereaders.  I am a paperback book fan/  I know the day will come when bookstores are non-existent, unless you count online bookstores and I’ll have no choice but to use them.  I’m sure I will cry when that happens.  As it is, one of my favorite authors released a Christmas novella only in ebook form, so I had to get the Kindle app for my iPhone so I could read the book.  I do NOT like that I had to do that.  Call me resistant to change, but some things are best left the way they were created (books = paper).
