***Some of you bookcrossers who frequent my sight may be surprised I released some 500+ book to a charity bookdrop. For 38 years now I've been wearing reading glasses-I realized I can still read some print but old paperback print is just to small, hence I did get a kindle and a lot of my books are in Large print as well. Make no mistake-this was charitable of me and thousands of dollars given away; however, we are in a recession and I am still spreading the written word!! Thank you, Cheryl! ***

I have always enjoyed reading, maybe because I truly get lost and involved with my books. Way back when I was in 1st grade, my teacher Miss Hope would give smiling Sam or Sally awards( they were just smily faces made on construction paper); however, I would win them almost every week. I would finish my work and then I would just reach behind me to our class bookshelf(I sat in the last row) and grab a book to read until class resumed again.

Throughout my school years teachers would always have trouble with getting my atttention if I had a book in my hand. Now I enjoy reading all different types of books and I feel guilty if I neglect my household duties, because wow I just can't put that book down. I hope you enjoy my bookshelf and I would be happy to hear from you.
