About meI have always loved to read and I'm the happiest when I'm around piles of books. Though now that I have a Kindle, my piles are shrinking. I volunteer for Books for Soldiers and send packages of books to the troops. They are so appreciative! They send me wonderful thank you notes. My heart goes out to anyone who has no access to books, so my volunteer work is very rewarding.

About my libraryThis is more of a reader's journal. I don't own every book listed. If I do own it, it is tagged with OWN. I have read every book in my library.

lovly collection..
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:

Ojibwa Prayer

Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds
And whose breath gives life to everyone,
Hear me.
I come to you as one of your many children;
I am weak... I am small...I need your wisdom
and your strength.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever
behold the red and purple sunsets.
Make my hands respect the things you have made,
and make my ears sharp so I may hear your voice.
Make me wise, so that I may understand what you
have taught my people and
The lessons you have hidden in each leaf and each rock.
I ask for wisdom and strength,
Not to be superior to my brothers, but to be able
to fight my greatest enemy, myself.
Make me ever ready to come before you with
clean hands and a straight eye,
So as life fades away as a fading sunset,
My spirit may come to you without shame.
Hi,
We seem to have 82 books in common. I love a wide range of genre's but I do love to get lost in really good historical fiction. My favourite book this year has been "The Time Traveller's Wife". The volunteer work you do sounds really great.
Hi, nice to meet another Jamie lover! *wave* I know what you mean about buying a book because it has a kilt on it - I'm the same way. I've begun to read just Scottish Highlander books, though I'm branching out into other genres as well. I intersperse my book reading with a romance, then a more serious book, and then another romance to mix it up - all in anticipation of An Echo in the Bone.I browsed through your library, we have a lot of the same books! I noticed you're an Austen lover and have read a lot of McMurtrey too. I loved Lonesome Dove, one of the best books I've ever read. I thought the TV version of it was great too. Robert Duval was Gus.
