Welcome to Buried Under Books! My name is Lelia Taylor and I live in St. Augustine, FL, after spending most of my life in the metro Richmond, VA, area. How lame is it to say I’m a former bookseller? It is what it is, though–after 9 1/2 years of co-owning a genre store called Creatures ‘n Crooks Bookshoppe and loving every minute of it, I was out on my ear, done in by the recession. I couldn’t make a clean break, had to stay in the book world in some way, so here began my next life.
So, what is this blog all about? Well, it’s the logical next step after the closing of our Richmond, VA store which specialized in mystery, science fiction, fantasy & horror. I’m happy to say I’m still a member of two of our book clubs, with connections to the third and to our writing group. What I miss, though, is the constant opportunity to share the excitement or, sometimes, the disappointment of books so that’s what we’ll be doing here. You’ll find reviews by me and some friends of books in these genres and others, thoughts about the bookselling business and guest blogs. Stay tuned also for some contests to win books and ARCs.
Enjoy yourself here and please share your thoughts with us!
