I had just gotten rejected by another reader when this reader kindly offered to let me take her photo. Thank you! She is reading Cloud Mountain, by Aimee E. Liu, which she borrowed from her housemate. Recently she read Native Son, by Richard Wright. She also reads fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction and nonfiction and whatever people leave in her restaurant.

Here's the review of Cloud Mountain from Audiofile:
Based on the story of her grandparents' marriage, this epic tale tells of forbidden love in the time surrounding the first World War. Hope Newfield is a young English teacher who falls in love with Liang Po-yu, a Chinese scholar and revolutionary. B.D. Wong's fluid voice seems to melt into Hope's character, and he's equally adept at portraying the earnest Liang. Because of Wong's tone, the entire production takes on the quality of reverie, well suited to Cloud Mountain's retrospective structure. Almost meditative in its overall presentation, Liu's story touches the part of us that understands how moving and powerful love can be. R.A.P.
