Note from BookCrossing Support October 2015: Farewell Harriet Klausner: a prolific reader and writer of reviews on many book sites, including ours. bit.ly/205P039
______________________________________________________________________________

Hello, my name is Harriet Klausner. I was born in the Bronx where I obtained a Masters in Library Science. My thesis topic was the Impact of Science Fiction Reading by High School Seniors on Standardized Reading Scores. I met my spouse Stan when he read my palm in a Bronx outdoor cafe.

After being married for seven months, we moved to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania where I worked in the local bookstore. Our only child was born just outside the city on the same day as the Three Mile Island "meltdown" began. A few months later, we moved to Massachusetts where I worked in a small used book store that catered to fans of horror and science fiction. Ultimately we moved to Georgia where we currently live.

There I have worked with the library and found an acquisition job in a bookstore. I also started my book reviewing career here. I have always been a big fan of fiction. My favorite books span most genres. I enjoy a heated romance, especially written by the Sandras - Chastain and Brown. I love science fiction and fantasy when the realm feels real. Horror is entertaining to me when the vampires seem as if they are another living (dead?) species. Koontz remains my king.

However, I particularly take pleasure from almost all the sub-genres of mystery to include comic books starring Batman and Ms. Tree. I do not enjoy non-fiction, especially biographies (Boring) or most westerns. Being a hyper-speed-reader (as my husband calls me), I sometimes read two-three novels in a day. I enjoy writing a short synopsis of what I read and evaluate the tale. I take immense pleasure telling other readers about newcomers or unknown authors who have written superb novels. Finally, my husband has told me that my epitaph will read "Give me literature or give me death."
