Marlene Breakfield

I've had a book addiction since I learned to read. At first, I read comic books, but then graduated to the classics, such as LITTLE WOMEN and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is one of my all-time favorite books. I read many genres, but romance and fantasy/science fiction are my favorite.

With this love of reading, I bet that you think I majored in English. No, I have a major in biology with a minor in chemistry. I find the sciences fascinating, also. I worked in a medical laboratory for 7 years.

I love to read and hope that I can read and review many wonderful books.
