Who we are …
Behind the pen name Jeri Talia Ryan (Jeri’s Book Attic) is a group of active readers.
One thing we do NOT have in common is our age as it is spread from 18 to over 40 which means we cover quite a large group when it comes to the interests of our visitors.
Except for the age-thing, we have many things in common. So we decided that it would be easier to combine our forces rather than fighting the evergrowing piles of “to read” books alone.
Therefore we choose to use the Pen Name “Jeri T. Ryan” to simplify all outside communication. As there will be only one Face and Person to communicate with.
Located all around the world, we have chosen to use English as our main language and we mostly also read-only English books.
Opening our own Blog “Jeri’s Book Attic” was a logical consequence to share our opinions with others.
We love books!
For us reading is like breathing – if we are not able to read …
it feels like we aren’t really alive.
Thats fact No. 1
We are all females who want to fall in love with our book boyfriends over and over again.
We crave emotions when reading a book.
We want to feel – no scratch that – we NEED to feel the book we are reading.
Thats fact No. 2
Even if smelling a book and being able to feel the paper between your fingers while turning the pages will always feel better as reading an e-book.
-forgetting your ebook reader
-losing all your data
-breaking the screen
-running on a low battery
ARE still sufficient reasons for a “small” breakdown.
Thats fact No. 3
With every book we begin to read, we hope to find a new book or series which is even more unique than the other one we have just finished.
A unique story, unique characters, a unique writing style – something that will stand out between all these books we have read, something that can surprise us.
When we again have finished a mind-blowing book it always feels like we will never again be able to find one which still represents what we described in this fact.

Oh, did we mention that we all own cats?
Reading and cats go hand in hand.
But yes we love dogs too 🙂
