About meI am an avid reader and love to talk about books! I have loved books since the first grade when my wonderful teacher inspired in me the love of books. I am a book blogger which has provided a wonderful way to connect with other readers and authors. I am an Occupational Therapist by profession and work part time in school based therapy. I have one son in middle school. My son has major food allergies so I am frequently reading a book about food allergies and health issues. I am interested in health and reading books about healthy eating, organic foods etc. I have many favorite genres of books that I read...Women's fiction, Literature,Classics, Historical fiction, memoirs/journal style books, some mysteries. I've just started reading more YA books as well. I am a member of a book club that I started in my neighborhood and love to talk about books. I also am a newbie knitter and enjoy reading fictional books about knitting. I love coffee and tea and collect tea cups. I also have a collection of cookbooks and enjoy reading foodie books as well.

Recently finished this books and enjoyed your review. You have good insights to consider-
I see you added Tomato Girl to your collection! I really want to read that one! If you ever want to trade, let me know =)

OH MY GOSH I love your profile picture!!

You're welcome :)
Thanks Bonnie.. I am just learning my way around. :)
Hi Bonnie- Thanks so much for your nice note and your friend invite! I'm off to check out your site!

Thanks so much for finding em. It looks like we share a lot of the same interests in books, just based upon your most recent activity, I have three of those and am looking at one other. :)
Hi again,

Thanks, by the way, for mentioning your Words to Mouth guest post. I got in touch with Carrie about guest posting on her blog and she is very friendly. I'll let you know if I wind up guest posting too! Do you ever enter her contests?

Thanks for the friend invite. Your blog looks great.
Thanks for the welcome, Bonnie! I'll slowly work my way around :-)
The book is Hell Bent by William G. Tapply, it looks like it is a mystery. I love mysteries. Of course, I only picked books that looked interesting to me, but I have never read any of his books. I can't wait!

I'm getting a book! I'm going to be an Early Reviewer! I am so excited! And nervous. YIPPEE!

Thanks for the friend invite. I added your blog to my google reader and will be interested to see how it continues to come along. Yes, that is me reading in my wedding dress, about 20 minutes or so before the ceremony started...a girl's got to keep busy somehow!
Hi Bonnie,
I posted a message on BT with my LT user name this past week. You must have missed the post. This is one great site:) Thanks for mentioning it on BT. Yes, the photo is my was taken in 2007.
Hi Bonnie,
Yes, you do know me. This is Cassie from BT =)
Hi, Redlady, I had a bit of trouble finding you, I am having some trouble navigating this website, I am slowly learning my way around. I signed up to be an early reviewer, I think it would be a cool thing to do. I have been writing reviews on another site and feel I am getting pretty good at it.

Thanks for the comment. I love the picture you posted, mine is of Abigail the former skinny stray who is now a fat indoor house cat.
Bonnie-I love the photo you posted =)
Hi Bonnie -- thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries! You are an OT?! I am a PTA! What area did you work in before deciding to stay at home? I work in pediatrics at an outpatient clinic, but also contract as a school therapist during the school year. This is my 16th year in the field....aack! Starting to feel really old!!!
Glad to "meet" you! :) I am off to peruse your blog now.
Bonnie - on your profile you have author clouds. What are they and how do you get them?
Bonnie it is Nan from booktalk . Hope I can get here often because it seems like a great site.
Bonnie - This seem like a great site and I like the fact that you cam get ARC to review. Thanks for mentioning it on WW.
Thanks, B! I haven't had a lot of time to spend here but hope to soon.
Yay! Happy to see you here. I'm not on the computer as much anymore so this site is perfect for my book addiction :) How are you doing?
Hi, there, redlady. Are you by chance Bonnie from Ohio? It looks like you've just gotten started on LT. I love this site!
