WELCOME TO THE 2013 ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY



I am so happy that you stopped by for a visit. My name is Melissa and I have been blogging with my mom, Eileen since 2009. I originally started Books R Us to promote my book Ginger High. Although the book never became a bestseller, I have learned a lot about publishing and writing.

I have a passion for American Sign Language. I am presently attending a Community College college and I am planning to transfer to Gallaudet University in Washington DC to obtain my BA in American Sign Language Interpreting. I plan to continue writing and I hope to finish the sequel to Ginger High Soon.

Growing up my mom encouraged me to read as much as I could and boy did that pay off in school. When I am busy with schoolwork my mom runs the blog and keeps the posts active. We hope you enjoy Books R Us. 


Books R Us is also participating in the Ultimate Blog Party door prize by offering A $25.00 Gift Card to Amazon.com So  head on over to UBP and check out all of the great prizes that is up for grabs.

Never give up. I am hoping to write myself soon too. Congratulations on your college work too. You have a lot to be commended for and make me thankful for what I have too. Keep up the wonderful work. You sound like a truly awesome young lady. :)

  12. it is so nice ot get to know more about you as a person - thank you so much for sharing! My step-daughter is a sign-language interpreter although she never had a chance to be professionally trained - she is an elementary and Jr. High teacher and is occasionally called on by other teachers to give talks about sign language to their classes. Good luck in your studies!

  17. How great that you blog together with your mom. And very cool that you have a passion for Sign Language. My first girl Julia used lots of sign language as a baby until she was 2 yrs old.
