Holiday Reading
Guests / December 31, 2006

I’m in a mystery / thriller mood, so I polished off most of the In Death series by J.D. Robb. Not recommended to all since they sorta run together — short time period and all — but not a bad way to spend a day. Next up is THE OXFORD MURDERS and ANONYMOUS LAWYER. Both are highly recommended and I’m hoping for a little aracane feeling in the Oxford one. The Anonymous is just sarcastic I hear *grin* Visit FreshFiction.com to learn more about books and authors.

My visit to the mall book store…Erotica is BIGGER than Series Romance
Guests / December 13, 2006

Yes, I went to the mall yesterday — after all it was 40% off day and I do have holiday shopping to do! And being a reader, the best gift to give is books! Because what I want to get is books so I always figured you give what you’d like to get! But I digress… Visited the Waldenbooks, still Waldenbooks not yet converted to the Borders Express which I am anxious to visit when they finish the changeover. The only store in the area that went through the transformation is not in a “friendly” mall *grin* Unfortunately, they didn’t have any of my top four choices — can it be THAT hard to find the John Hodgeman book — but I did find a cookbook that I’d never buy at normal price so the trip was not a loss. And I did a bit of research. Visiting the romance, mystery, fiction and science fiction/fantasy section. My impressions for any of you marketing gurus out there. The romance section has evolved. It is now the catch all for every other genre. Yes, I know romance readers go across the lines, democratic in their reading and all that, but honestly, they…
