I joined so that I could review stories. If people are willing to go to the effort to write and post them for me to read, it seems only fair to let the authors know how much I enjoyed what they shared. I've got a bit of a backlog of stories to review, but I'm working on it ... and will hopefully get to all of them eventually!

For anyone who cares, I have a LiveJournal page, under the name ldrunner8 (first letter is a lowercase L), where I keep track of books I've read or am reading. Not sure how often it will be updated, but if you're looking for reading suggestions, feel free to stop by.
