Sara is a moderator for the para- list and does all the promotion for PNR, P.E.A.R.L., and the Paraphernalia E- zine.

A "readaholic" she reads over 12 books per week plus assorted other periodicals, business materials, technical documents and cans, boxes and assorted packages, billboards, buses, taxi windows, banners and other things. Romance books have appealed since the early 1980s and she has managed to create a library of over 10,000 books.

Her husband sent out her resume when it came to his attention that her monthly book spending limited him to one album a quarter (hey, it was back in the 80s! I wondered why those people called for interviews.) Now a management project consultant, she has the resources to fund her reading habit.

Truly TBR-challenged, Sara finds it near-to-impossible to have books in her vicinity without reading. Something about little voices calling her name. So, she spends most waking hours reading when not being disturbed by business obligations, wifely duties, motherly activities, friends' gatherings, and e-mail perusing.

As to reviews, she finds it difficult to sugar-coat her opinions to the degree required, besides, it would take away from the time spent reading more books! However, there are a few reviews out there so if you look really hard, you might stumble over one.
