Karin Schimke

Not now darling, I’m reading is a blog for people who read.

My name is Karin Schimke. I am a reader.

I am also a writer. I was trained as a journalist, became a reporter, became a political writer, became a mother, became a freelance journalist, became an author of non-fiction, became a columnist, became a published poet.

But before all of those I was a reader.

This blog muses on reading and on things read. There are reviews, and links to the monthly column in the Cape Times newspaper, which I write as editor of the paper’s weekly books page.
