Time to introduce you to ~Karen, the 3rd book lover helping me review on this blog.
Each reviewer I am adding will have different tastes in the types of books they enjoy reading and the content level they are comfortable reading.
Karen enjoys reading middle grade, young adult, clean romance, LDS authors, fantasy/sci-fi & classics.
Karen & I are very similar in both the kind of books we enjoy reading and the content we are comfortable with.
The target audience effects what I am okay with a little, but not a lot. Too much content and it will definitely lower my rating even if I really like the book otherwise.
I am married to a wonderful man. I graduated from college with a degree in English, and I minored in Editing. I love books, everything about them. Some other things I enjoy are movies, art, and cross-stitching (and I recently created an Etsy store to sell my creations on). For my day jobs, I work as the business manager for a business that does advertising, marketing, design, and publishing, and I am also a receptionist for a small liberal arts university.

This is a hard one, though I believe I still lean more to print.

Planning Ahead, though a little spontaneity once in a while is nice too.

This is another hard one. A few years ago it would be Mac hands down. Now, well. Now I’m just not sure.
