Bibliophilism: A Fetish for Books
Confessions of a bibliophile. My favorite thing to do is to try to hook readers up with books I think they'll enjoy. My tastes are diverse, though I will confess to being a classics and history buff. I read all genres, including non-fiction. Submit here.
Books I Grew Up On
Of all the books I read as kid, very few were as formative for me as The Protector of the Small series, which follow a young girl, Keladry of Mindelan, through her development as a Knight. These books have a charm I rarely see in children’s fantasy, and better, they’re both accessible for kids and informative for them. Kel, for example, is the reason I was prepared for menstruation. Unlike Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret, and some other books that mention the issue I could name, Pierce gave young readers the basic facts, and neither glorified nor sugar-coated them. She also won major brownie points from me for showing romance and attraction not as a LOVE IS FOREVER, PRETENDED idea, but as a perfectly natural part of growing up. Kel fell in and out of love several times, and each was realistic, plausible, and completely devoid of propaganda, which is what young girls need.
