Meet the Staff

my name is b and i have a deep and abiding love for the written word. put to music, bound in leather and delicate parchment, or etched in ink, the combinations of these intricate curves and lines resonate. there is power and immortality within the printed page and it is why i have such an enduring love of words.

i am a southern romantic and will always have a strong connection to dark southern literature. but i am open to all genres as long as they have a solid story and make me feel. i am excited to be a part of the lll team and to have the opportunity to talk books with other aficionados while also getting the opportunity to immerse myself in the depths of some well written pages.

Salutations from the Mid-West,  I’m Karen and guess what I love to read. I am a community volunteer; plus a dog, horse, and book lover. For fun I teach genealogy and restore old cemeteries. I don’t believe in hiding my sincerity, so if I like something or someone you will hear about it, loud and often.

I am so proud to be included among this fabulous group of woman, that I meet because of our love of two books. I believe that books are a gift from the author to the world. I may not like everything I have ever read; but each book has a message that the author wanted to covey to the audience, and I respect that message.

When it comes to reading, I read everything. I love paranormal, fantasy, romance, mysteries, suspense, classic, young adult, youth, histories,  etc. etc. etc., point I read everything, shh don’t tell anyone smut too! We will keep that one a secret, between us.

Another of my passions is supporting various charities and organizations, among them are Charity Water, World Book Night USA, World Book Night UK, Hiring Our Heroes, Got Your Six, 4-H, Not For Sale, Alex’s Lemonade, Somaly Mam Foundation, Riley Hospital, Join(Red), Ocean Conservancy, and St. Jude’s.  This is me in a nutshell.


“Beware the man of one book.” ― Thomas Aquinas

“For it is in giving that we receive.” ― St. Francis of Assisi

“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” ― Dalai Lama XIV

“No one has ever become poor by giving.” ― Anne Frank, diary of Anne Frank

“You shall not pass.”     Tolkien

“Death is but the next great adventure.”     Rowling

“For if you believe that kindness is never wasted, you have to hold tightly to that belief even when the kindness is thrown back in your face.”     Reynard

I am a reformed English major, retired OB nurse and first time blogger. I give my 8th grade typing teacher full credit for bringing me to this point in my life by teaching me the only job skill I had until I graduated from nursing school. I am an obsessive reader who fell in love with books when I learned to read at the age of four and I retired so I would have more time to read! I love music, kitties, traveling and Auburn football.

I’m the payroll manager for a construction company in NYC.  In addion to my family, my true loves are reading and writing.  My love for reading started before I could remember and I’ve been writing my own stories since the 7th grade.  Real life intervened and I couldn’t find the time to read but that changed a couple of years ago and I am back at it. I’m so in love with reading that I recently got a tattoo of books with a cherry blossom tree growing out them.  The bookworm in the Twilight Zone episode:  Time Enough at Last, that’s me.
