Random googling has just confronted me with Sheila O’Malley, and she’s won herself an instant position as my second-favourite source of book reviews. On a slight tangent, here’s something that should be ingested by any blogger:
My ideal reader is someone who shares my sense of humor, who “gets it”, someone who doesn’t roll their eyes at excitement or enthusiasm, someone who loves to get fired up about this or that, who isn’t put off by a grown woman blithering like a 13 year old. My ideal reader is someone who likes to go deep. Who isn’t afraid to go deep. My ideal reader is not the kind of person who needs to make a joke, nervously, when the mood gets serious.
