About A Satisfying Affair

A Satisfying Affair is a blog where Merchickety writes about the books she’s reading. In addition she’ll also write about the topics the stories make her think of. She might also, occasionally, write about herself in the third person. Like she’s doing now.

The name comes from a quote by Stephen King. "Reading a good long novel is in many ways like having a long and satisfying affair"
— Stephen King

About Merchickety

Merchickety is an alien from a distant planet. The name of her planet is impossible to write or pronounce in English, so she tells people her planet is called “Missouri” as it’s the closest possible pronunciation to the real name.

Merchickety came to planet Earth in 1989 and moved to Kansas in 2011. During her time here, Merchickety has developed a love of Earth literature. She makes an effort to read whenever possible. She enjoys horror, fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, and love stories. Merchickety also enjoys the occasional non-fiction book, especially if it involves science, skepticism, history, or writing.
