Usedbooks has been a member of the Drunk Duck community since early 2007, which means she has been sharing, contributing, and participating in this site for the last nine years! She has always been a creative addition to many community projects on the site such as the original Comic Remix, Pay It Forward, the DD Fashion Show, the Christmas Gift Art Exchange, and is a very important contributor to the annual Drunk Duck Awards.

A lover of all things science-related, usedbooks studied biology in school and uses her experiences to write the hilarious comic Gelotology that science lovers would appreciate! Usedbooks is also known for her appreciation for mammals of the order Rodentia as she has many years of experience raising pet rats. She was able to channel her interests into a webcomic and produce the short story, "The Quiet Field".

Above all else, the comic that usedbooks is most known for on the site shares the same name as her username, Used Books. It is a crime drama/noir story stars a group of three female friends from a book store: Seiko, Kaida, and Yuki. This is a very long running comic and has over 1300 comic pages in its archive! Usedbooks finds inspiration to write mystery themed stories because of her love of classic novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie. She is also influenced by contemporary animated television shows such as Lupin III and Detective Conan.

ng–comics have the ability to transcend all ages, walks of life, eccentricities, and unique individuals. It can be used as a tool to find common ground between two strangers from different backgrounds. This experience reaffirmed the reason that I have been spending so much time working with comics.

Thanks for this feature. I'm touched. Now I'm remembering aborted projects. Turns out it's hard to come up with a gag a week. I don't know how people do it. Even harder to turn a short story into a wordless webcomic. XD But At least I have five solid years of scripts waiting to become part of Used Books.

@plymayer: Me too. You'd think all the hilarious misinformed pseudoscience nuts would give me inspiration, but they have mostly been stealing all my punchlines.

I have been a huge fan of Used Books and her comics since first finding DD. Just wish Gelotology updated more.
