Bessie Makris prepares these lists for AAR. As with all of our volunteer staff, here’s a bit about her, in her own words:
My two greatest interests (some would say obsessions) are books of all kinds and movies. I satisfy one by working as a Librarian (in Fort Wayne, Indiana), haunting bookstores, and constantly reading and theother by volunteering with a local cinema group. My interest in the romance genre is long standing – I discovered Georgette Heyer in April, 1972 and series romances during the summer of 1985. Before Heyer, I read a lot of historical novels but was never quite sure what I was looking for. After Heyer, I knew it was humor and romance combined with interesting characters in a historically accurate setting and I have been trying to recapture that reading experience ever since. I also read Mysteries, a little Science Fiction and graphic novels. I collect pop-up books and morters and pestles.
I’d love to hear from you, so feel free to email me
