This is the Readers Lounge where we'll be talking to Jeanette Mcmillan James creator of Readers R Us. An pro-active popular Facebook group with readers from all over...I have had a passion for reading ever since I can remember. I collected the “TheBerenstain Bears” books in 1st grade. As I got older I fell in love with “The baby sitters club” and “Sweet valley high” books. When I was in high school a family member introduced me Terry McMillan and she made me fall in love with reading all over again. My Aunt would have to come and check on me to see if I was still alive because I’d spend the whole day in my room reading. From Terry I moved onto Eric Jerome Dickey. His books were just a little slow to start but I did enjoy his work. I hear a lot of people say that “The Coldest Winter Ever” was the book that got them hooked on Urban Lit. I liked the book but it was not what did it for me. An ex con friend of mine told me I should read Donald Goines' books so I picked up “Dopefiend” and I’ve been addicted since.
