Welcome to Bea's Book Nook. Originally, there was just Bea. Now, there are three of us: Bea, Jax, and Carol, who provides guest reviews. Jax and I met due to our love for Kelley Armstrong's board and we met Carol due to a shared love of Patricia Briggs's books.

You'll find mostly book reviews here, but also occasionally book news, book industry rumors, etc. The genres we review are fairly broad, if it appeals to one of us, we'll review it. We don't do business books but almost anything else is fair game. If you have a topic you want to see here drop us a line. 

Bea: I love to read. I will read any time, anywhere, almost anything ie laundry detergent bottle, lost newspaper, whatever is at hand. I enjoy fantasy of most varieties, some sci fi, romances, mysteries, childrens, YA, the occasional craft book, anything to do with early childhood and development, and early childhood education. When I'm not reading, I play with my cat, make soaps, try to breathe, and teach pre-school. I'm a preschool teacher, an editor at Astraea Press and a freelance copy editor & proof reader. I've contributed reviews to BookTrib and Romance at Random.

Jax: I've been reading for as long as I can remember. I still re-read my childhood favorites, and am looking for new YA jewels as my children get older. I used to say I was just a sci-fi/fantasy junkie, but as I look over my shelves, my collection is a bit more eclectic than I thought. History, romance, photography, cookbooks, poetry, psychology/sociology, humor...my shelves are a hodgepodge of notions and schools of thought. I hope you enjoy the mix as much as I do.

Carol: Carol does guest reviews for the Nook. She works full time and is a mother and grandmother. Her favorite authors include Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, Taryn Kincaid and Lisa Renee Jones. She reads both print and Kindle books.
