A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.

I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

Contest: And the Winner Is ....

And the winner has been randomly selected for Howard S. Smith's I, robot. Congratulations to ......... Book Dragon ! If Book Dragon had a robot with AI here's the one thing she'd like it to do for her at home:

"I would want a robot that did dishes. Dusting. Wait, can the robot to all the household chores I hate to do? ;-)"

I think chores would count as one thing as lots of people answered housework. In fact, every answer was a variation on the theme! Some people were a little more specific naming laundry, grocery shopping and washing dishes.

Now I know why there are so many infomercials for household cleaning gadgets! The industry must be a goldmine.

Congratulations, Book Dragon. I'll be dropping you an email shortly.

If you didn't win today, there is always another chance so stay tuned for another giveaway where I've got great book up for grabs!
