About meI was a library supervisor and freelanced for a publisher. So, as you can probably guess I love writing and talking about books! Last I looked, my book blog had an audience of over 40 countries. I'm thankful to be flooded with requests for book reviews but I know there are many excellent books out there I'm missing.

My passion for reading started at a young age with summers spent in the children's reading program, savoring every page. While I still love children's books, my reading has grown into an obsession where I read and review many genres.

To me, a book is a great companion, it is a refuge where I can enter an imaginary world, or escape to a new place and learn new words. A book permits the opportunity to look at different perspectives, and the rustle of paper, specific scenes, and phrases excite me. Beyond everything, though a few characters have come close, I remain on my quest to prove I have no DOPPELGANGER!

About my libraryI read across various genres and have a growing collection of lovely old books. Everything listed in my catalog I own or have read a galley on.

“No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting. She will not want new fashions nor regret the loss of expensive diversions or variety of company if she can be amused with an author in her closet.” ― Mary Wortley Montagu
