Oh, my! Kyla has delurked, and I don't even seem to have gotten the
message myself. Nonetheless, this suggests that I ought to delurk as
well. I'm Kyra Jucovy, a freshman at Swarthmore, from West Egg (err,
Great Neck, NY. Sorry about that). I am that force for evil and
destrution who introduced Kyla to the list. I have actually been
following messages on the list on the archives for a long time without
actually joining, since I was afraid of how much of my time that would
take up. When the archives stopped in August, I still went back and
checked about once a week to make sure they hadn't started up
again. Imagine my surprise and joy when they actually did! When I
realized I was going to go back and read them all, I decided that there
wasn't any actual reason to stay off and signed up.
I think that the first DWJ book I read was _Dogsbody_, when I was about
eight. She became one of my favorite authors after I read _The Lives of
Christopher Chant_ that year. My favorite is _Archer's Goon_. I first
read it when I was eleven. The year after that, I read it again. For the
ensuing week after this, the book took over my life. I had to get my
brother to hide it so that I wouldn't spend all my time rereading it again
and again. I then spent the entire week making up a prequel (although I
didn't write any of it down). It was a truly alarming experience, but
great fun. I think my second favorite is _Hexwood_, but apart from that,
with very few exceptions, I love them all. After all, one or two books
isn't enough to make a favorite author, only a favorite book. Consistent
quality (or at least enjoyment) is what does it :).
So, hello everybody! I am not a loud person so I may not talk a
lot. But it's nice to meet you all :).
