About J. C. Hardy

I'm an avid reader of everything these days. While horror still holds a special place in my heart (and bookshelves), I find that with the advent of Kindle my interests have broadened significantly.
I have been reading everything I can get my hands on from SciFi/Fantasy, to Classics and Tacitus and Cicero. I have found so many things that I've only heard about and never had the opportunity to read that I am a bit like a kid in a candy store.
The phrase, So many books, so little time was never so true as it is now. I am still dreaming of my house with a library, with the addition of a cozy fireplace and super comfortable chairs ;)
