Growing up I remember once while being home sick, I read a book a day, I was home for a week with strep. My mother told me that I had to get better so I could use my library card more because it was too expensive to keep buying me books. I actually still have that particular series of books, I had to own them all, all 20!
I have always loved how a good book could take me away to new place and introduce me to new people. While occasionally movies can do that, I feel a good book can do it better. It allows your own imagination to play with how the characters really sound and look.
While in college and graduate school, I still read – but usually the books I wanted to read:) I hated not having the time to curl up somewhere and become lost in a book. As a theatre major I spent significant time learning how to analyze plays and do in depth character analyses – which occasionally took the fun out of reading.
To this day, I still have books everywhere, and even some that I have enjoyed so much I have read more than once, and some even more than twice!
Here in these pages I plan to share that love by telling about the books I have read or am reading. Feel free to comment on any of the books or even share a few of your favorites too.
As you can see, I am open for new authors to submit books too. One of my best friends and my sister are both authors and they have turned me on to writing reviews. A great way to read lots of great stories and hopefully introduce myself and my readers to new authors.
