Elizebeth is also very knowledgeable about music of every genre, especially local bands, classical music and venues, World music, rock, opera, pop and Indie music.

She is also a voracious reader, preferring fiction over non. She utilizes both e-books and the physical variety, and loves to write reviews. Her absolute favorite genres are horror, young adult, and fables, but she can also be seen absorbed in non-fiction about her interests.
