ABOUT US.

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 the Rochester Institute of Technology  obtaining my BS 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.

  9. Wow, that is great. I have an interest in ASL, as well - I had an ex who was deaf, though sadly I've forgotten nearly everything I knew (just like my high school French). Use it or lose, right? Anyway - why don;t you make some videos of you signing songs and put them on YouTube? I love when songs are signed, they convey so much more!!!!
