Even though this Wench has an extremely busy life with her kids and husband she never fails to find time to read. I will read just about anything. I am a Jane Austen fanatic, a Twilighter, a rabid Harry Potter fan, and a sucker for a humorous story. My tastes run all over the spectrum. I read for enjoyment, plain and simple. I do tend to wear my rose-colored glasses most of the time, and while I am wearing those glasses I prefer a glass of wine in one hand and a book in the other.
My love of reading began when I was quite young. I have read the Nancy Drew series in it's entirety more than three times. I have read every Phyllis Whitney book as well as Victoria Holt. It all started there. Gothic romance holds a special place in my heart along with Historical novels. It is where I started and I always seem to go back to it when I need a comfort read.
My like and dislike of genres changes with the wind, and I am always on the lookout for something new. I tend to be overly passionate about things I enjoy, so watch out!

P.S. Bobby is NOT the queen of typos...she is the Queen of Commas.
Oh my goodness...Teagan says I have to write something "fun" in this space. Heaven help me!
So who the hell is Bobby, anyway? A 47-year-old, blue-haired, cat-loving, motorcycle-riding introvert who cannot be separated from her Kindle for more than an hour or two, that's who I am. My favorite foods are champagne and birthday cake -- yum! And no, Bobby's not my real name, but it is my mother's name, so it's real enough for me to answer to when called. I live in a small town outside of Seattle and work in the city (let's hear it for public transit!), and I'm married to a lovely Canadian-turned-American who puts up with much more crap from me than he ought to.
I've been an avid reader since childhood but have never had a particularly intellectual taste in books (people seem to think that I'm much smarter than I actually am, heh). I read for enjoyment -- pure and simple -- and I especially like suspense and humor and romance. No, I never outgrew my adolescent love for mush, although my tastes have matured a bit over the decades. Perhaps it's part of becoming "middle-aged," but I'm no longer ashamed to admit that I read romance. I'm sure not trying to impress anyone but myself, anyway!
Over a quarter century ago, I graduated college with a B.A. in English. What does that mean? Very little! :-) Perhaps that I know how to read and can happily mangle the English language. Just call me queen of all typos. I'm happy to take your comments and constructive criticism as long as you understand that to err is human. And for me to err? Well, that's just the way I ride!
