WildmooBooks: Why the goofy name?
(Pronounced: Wild – Moo – Books)
I have an affinity for cows and years ago my mom gave me a cow-print sweater (I swear it was in fashion at the time). I was often moo’ed at by friends when wearing the sweater, which morphed into the nickname, “Moo.” One day while making a turn a little too fast while driving (behavior I do not condone) the words “wild” and “moo” came together and there you have it. I also like to draw and the cow in my logo above is one of my cartoon characters.
WildmooBooks seemed like a fun blog name and, as a recovering literary snob, it helps remind me to stay focused on what I love about books, which is the pure pleasure of reading and exploring ideas and other worlds.
The Book Cougars Podcast
In December 2016, my friend Emily Fine and I decided to start a book podcast after we’d driven eight hours round-trip to go to a book event and talked about books the entire time. Shortly thereafter, the Book Cougars: Two Middle-Aged Women on the Hunt for a Good Read was born. It’s hard to believe we’re now in our third year as podcasters! You can stream episodes directly from our website, iTunes, or look for us on your podcast app.
I also review crime fiction and related historical nonfiction on Criminal Element.
Thanks for visiting, and Happy Reading!
