Meet Vintage Reader Contributor Audra

I'm a 30-something married lesbian with a thing for literary fiction and historical novels. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf. Like my favorite people in the world, 'bookworm' could be my middle name, and I never travel without something to read. (Which is why I so love my e-reader!) I'm an Air Force brat currently living in Boston, and I work full time at a job that, alas, doesn't pay me to read all day. I loved Little Women and Caddie Woodlawn as a kid, Wuthering Heights and Rebecca when a teen, and Persuasion and Out of Africa as an adult, and I reread all of those books every few years. (Of course, that doesn't stop me from adding to the list: my GoodReads favorites shelf numbers at 65, and that's me restraining myself!)

Reading is a relationship experience for me: I love discussing books and exploring what different readers take from the same text. My wife and friends, bless their hearts, indulge me and it is a rare meal that doesn't include at least some book chatter prompted by yours truly. (Come on, food plus books?! I'm in heaven!) I'm always looking to add to my TBR, so I welcome any and all recommendations! Feel free to stop by my blog, Unabridged Chick, to see what I'm reading and say hi!
