About meHello all! I am an avid reader with a wide variety of interests, particular in cultural performing arts and ethnic cooking. Dancing is one of my favorite activities--I am taking belly dance classes and enjoy Latin dancing and soul line dancing regularly as well. There's no way I can pinpoint just one genre of books as my favorite...if you take a peek at my library, you'll see for yourself where my interests lie. I'm looking forward to lively discussion and conversation with like-minded bookies (or not--lets' debate)!!

I'm a book juggler (hmm, picture that, lol). I need a book to listen to on the way to work, one to curl up with at night, and another for book discussions. I'm also committed to catch up reading some of the many non-fiction books I have.

About my libraryWhat you will find in my library are mysteries, horror, fantasy, cook books, family saga, African American fiction as well as history, cultural arts, foreign fiction, and so much more!!

I set up my collections primarily to catalog books based on ownership and reading status. Books in my library are books I physically own. My TO READ collection is my TBR list for 2010. CURIOUSITY PIQUERS is a bit different from WISHLIST in that I need a bit more information about the book to decide whether or not it makes to the wishlist...I heard about the book and it sounds somewhat interesting.

Thanks for visiting, you are unique visitor #...

Thanks!!! Have you read a Song Yet Sung by James McBride or Dominion by Calvin Baker?
The African/African American Literature Forum would love to know what you are reading. Drop by and recommend or discuss a book.
Hi Rakisha,
You are very welcome! It was meant to be anonymous but I hit the enter button too soon. *sigh* You deserved it anyway - it is amazing how emotional we get over used books; we ALL do I might add. The trick is to know when to get over it - and smooches help very well in that regard. At least I hope this one did. :)

Noticed you liked She's Come Undone, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed young girl's downward spiral and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Thanks so much for posting such a nice comment on my profile! It's fun to meet fellow dancers here!
Hi, CutestLilBookworm!
Love your photo on the profile page. I wish I knew how to put in a photo. I am not too good with computers. :)

Thanks so much for the info on the Marquez book. I have a couple of other books by him that I need to read. I was mostly asking about it for my daughter who is a Spanish major. I am always looking for books to get her by Latin American authors. I think that the book looks pretty interesting.

I see that you are reading Things Fall Apart. I am hoping to read that this summer. Do you like it so far? I see also that you are in the Highly Rated Book Group. I will see you there for The Blind Assassin. I have ordered the book from amazon with the supersaver shipping, however, and it has not yet shipped, so I will be late to that one. Have a great day and thanks so much for the comments on the Marquez book.

"Look To This Day"
(from the Sanskrit)

Look to this day
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the
Varieties and realities of this existence
This bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendour of beauty;
For yesterday is only a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision
But today well lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope
Look well, therefore to this day
Such is the salutation of the dawn.
Hi Cutie,

I have started a thread on the Group Home page for future group reads.
Would you be so kind as to post your suggestion there for everyone to read?

I like your suggestion as I recently bought The Crimson Petal and the White but it is a long book and may not be entirely suitable for our Group. But I will certainly consider it.

It is one of the only two books that we share!

Best regards,

- TT
Welcome to The Highly Rated Book Group!

We are so glad you could join us again for some more great book reads!


PS: Your photo is lovely!
Thank you for the book suggestion for the next Highly-Rated Group Book Read!

Truthfully, the amazing Tortoise figures out the book(s) to read, and I may or may not get involved depending on how busy I am! I'll be sure to give him your suggestion, so he can evaluate it for the future.

Thank you again!

I know what you mean about audio books and keeping up with the characters. I have posted a starter question here. Feel feel to add your own questions. See you there!
Hey! I saw that you recently added A Mery. I'm hoping to get a few folks together to read and discuss over in the African-American lit group. If you're interested, stop by!
Thanks for accepting my friendship. I really like to read. I ride the bus and train on a daily basis, so I try to keep something with me to read at all times.LOL
Nice library! I just started adding my cook book collection to my shelf. You might find some interesting titles there . . .

You didn't say what you thought of Art of War and you didn't rate it either. If you enjoyed that, try Book of Five Rings by Musashi. There are lessons there applicable to daily life.
