Currently Reading: One Day by David Nicholls

Welcome To My Bookshelf

This is a place of mystery...a sanctuary. Every book, every volume you see here has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.

Carlos Ruiz Zafon, The Shadow of the Wind

Hi Everyone, thank you for visiting my page. I love books and I will read nearly anything from Pride and Prejudice to the Dog Whisperer. I'm in a Book club about five years and our five members meet monthly. The thing I like about being in a book club is that you get to read lots of books that you may not choose for yourself. I would love to find a book that was released into the wild but it has yet to happen!!!
