Florinda Pendley Vasquez
Florinda Pendley Vasquez works with numbers, not words, as Controller for a social-services nonprofit in Los Angeles, California, but who wants to blog about accounting? Not her, which is why this lifelong reader and seven-year veteran blogger has been talking about books at The 3 R's Blog: Reading, 'Riting and Randomness since March 2007. The "randomness" extends to popular culture, travel, family, life, and commentary on issues and experiences both major (sometimes) and minor (all too often), but "reading" is the first "R" in her blog's title for a good reason. Florinda is also a contributing reviewer for Shelf Awareness for Readers.
