About meThere is nothing in the world better than a good book. I live to read. If I don't have a book in my hand, I feel lost. It is food for the soul.

About my libraryI love contemporary literature. I rarely read non-fiction.

Hi Karen,

Thanks for the friend invitation. I savor every opportunity to be friends with a fellow book lover. I read voraciously! Usually reading two and listening to one at any given time. A "book in the hand" whenever possible is my motto!! I know you will love this site. Since I've joined I've been trying to reveiw all the books I read. My favorite tip to give you is another web site that I am also addicted to. It's, free to join and it's not only paperbacks, but hardcover and audio too. You list any books you might want to trade, every book is worth 1 point, and they give you a free one just for joining. If a book is requested from you, the postage is all it costs you to send, which can be purchased and printed out in your home and mailed from your own mailbox. For each book you send you recieve one point to request another. You can brose the sight or search for what you want and if it is not immediatly available, you can put it on a wish list and they'll notify you when it is available. OR you can purchase points for $3.95 each which is a very cheap price for a book! When you are finished with it, if you do not want to keep it, you can relist it yourself. SO FUN!!! Since I joined last November, I have amassed about 100 "wish list" books that all look wonderful! I had listed a lot of books I didn't care to keep and have relisted many that I have received and read. I feel "book RICH!" Just yesterday I received A Home At The End Of The World, that you have listed above. Have you read it yet? If so, did you like it?

Hello....welcome to Librarything. I too am an avid reader....usually have two books on the go at any given time. Right now I am rereading Pride and Prejudice (and enjoying it immensely!) and a book that I received from Librarything as an early reviewer. Love your profile picture....she is sweet!!!!
Hi Karen. Thank you for the invite! I think you'll love this site. I read your review - sounds like something I'd like to read. I can't imagine the world without books! Happy to have you as a friend.
Hi Karen! I know exactly what you mean - I need a book in my hand (or on the table next to me, or in my bag etc. etc.) or I feel lost as well. I'm in the middle of moving right now and it's seriously cut into my reading time and I just feel antsy! That doesn't mean I'm not reading at all though - currently I'm back to the Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility.

Welcome to LibraryThing - I'm sure you'll love it.
Hi Karen, Thanks for the friend request. I too feel lost without a book in my hand. I can't remember the last time I didn't have a book that I was reading. I read your review for Hidden Wives and I think it sounds like an intriguing read. I am putting it on my wishlist. I am now reading House Rules by Jodi Picoult which is also riveting. I think you will like it here. I find so many new and interesting book suggestions here. I'm glad to have you as a friend!
Hello! Welcome to Library Thing. Your to-be-read list is about to get a whole lot bigger!!!!
Hi Karen - thank you for the friend request, which I happily accept. After reading your profile, I feel a real connection since I, too, feel lost without a book in my hand. I know you'll enjoy this site. It is wonderful to be among other people who love books and to be able to catalog all the books I want to read, which had previously been noted on numerous pieces of paper. I am currently reading Ian McEwan's The Child in Time, which is haunting and beautifully written. Her Fearful Symmetry is next for me - heaven forbid I shouldn't have a backlog waiting to be read. We are going to Europe next month, and I am carefully considering which books to take: a decision more important than clothes. I'm sure you understand.
Take care,
