About meI'm married and a working mom with two school-aged kids who keep me very busy! I enjoy well-written books about hope, romance, and supportive girlfriends as well as thrillers, crime series and best sellers. My rules of thumb are the book has to have good character development and can't be too depressing!!!!!

About my library"There is one thing on which we are agreed: there are too many books in the world to read in a single lifetime; you have to draw the line somewhere." The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

Since I'm somewhat obsessed with reading, I have a lot of books on my shelf, as well as many I've leant to others or donated to charity. I'm usually reading several at the same time, one of each genre. However, I'm particularly in love with Chick Lit because it is like visiting with your friends.

Did you buy a copy of House of Leaves? I picked a copy up at a garage sale a couple years ago, but still haven't read it. Looks very intriguing tho!
Looks like I requested 5, which is more than I have been requesting recently.
I did! I thought for sure you would too.
Did you get the new Allison Winn Scotch book via ER?
I saw you read the Hunger games series, one of my favorite series. When you join our series group we would love to hear your opinion in our "Gale vs. Peeta" topic.
Robin when are you going to read The Red Tent? I am finishing up Freedom and starting Tarantula Woman. I'm not really feeling Freedom, but it is an interesting book. You might like it so try to read it when I am done. It's about major family dysfunction over three generations. Talk to you soon.
No. I added books and did reviews. Maybe they only send you books if you have a paid membership.
Oh also my Kindle is due to arrive on Friday or Saturday...I'm so excited!
Hey Robin I've started reading The Red Tent. So far it seems to be a very good book and I really don't know why I put it off for so long. It's biblical.

Cool picture
I love Dickens! He's so stuffy and proper....but for the record, I read all my Dickens in high school or college. I don't know if I would still love him as an adult. I have not snagged an early release book yet. Maybe I don't read fast enough for them or review enough books. If I could read more, I would post more reviews.
Robin,
I can't believe you're reading Great Expectations! Let me know what you think of it.
And did you get another ER book? :') I did!
So how are you liking Outlander? Which format are you reading??
Hey Robin,
Last week-end I finished [The Thirteenth Tale] on audio. I enjoyed it so much that I am truly missing the company of the characters in the car with me. I was taken by many characters right down to Arellius(sp?).

*Tell me did you read [The House at Riverton] based on The Thirteenth Tale's recommendation?

I find myself drawn to that same prose and maybe it's the Englishness of it as well. Both ladies on audio were perfect.

I enjoyed your review of [The Forgotten Garden] and will try to find that book.

Take Care,
Bonnie

I just read your wonderful review of 'The Unit'.
It does sound interesting; refreshingly zombie-free as well which is oddly hard to find in PA lately.
Dystopian and post-apocalyptic lit are my weaknesses, I suppose it comes from a cold war childhood.
Thank you for the recommendation!
Hi Robin!
It is good to know that I am not alone in my addiction. Thankfully, my hubby has been sweet enough to build shelves for me as my collection expands although I think he dreads library sales, ha.
We are in Middletown actually,a little area outside of Anderson.
It is great to meet another "voracious" reader in the area!
Do you mind if I add you as a friend?
Take care,
Deb
Toronto is an amazing city...I think half the population were born outside Canada. Love all the different neighbourhoods...both our kids live there.
No, I have not read it yet (Weekends at Bellevue). I am very interested in mental health and volunteer at local hospital.
I remember working full time with school age kids and I did not read much then (except all the school related stuff!) Still miss reading to my kids (and classes).
Lovely to hear from you, Robin, and hope it's OK if I add you as a friend.
Enjoyed your review of "Weekends at Bellevue". And what a cute little baby Boston!

Noticed you liked Ellen Foster, 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 a southern story about a disturbed young girl (and also 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). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more before you commit:

Thanks,

What a wonderful book, the Potato Pie, etc. is! Thanks for loaning it. It reminds me of 84 Charing Cross Road. And references to Charles Lamb and Joseph Addison in the first few chapters!
Hey Robin,

Indygo88 gave me your name as a fellow Indy reader. I'm going to try to make it to the book club meeting in Fishers next week. Just thought I would introduce myself before then.

I am game for reading a book. I have obviously already read the Subaru book ... so just let me know what everyone wants to do!
You're on! I don't suppose that gift will come in the Kindel version...
Though I have read School of Dreams...I think the rest of the library differences could be explained by disparities in estrogen levels.
Thanks for the suggestions. I will have to check one out .. see what I think. I did pick up "Tara Road" that I have been meaning to read. Kinda long, too, but easy reading. Keep me informed on what is good.
Hi,can you tell me how the book,I This Much Is True, was. I've seen it at the bookstore but haven't bought it yet. I'm half way done with Across a Hundred Mountains, I've all ready cried several times reading that book. I can't put it down.
Hi!! Sorry so long in getting back to you, but haven't been on for awhile.
I am from Ohio. How about you? What are you reading now. I just purchased
Ken Follett's "Pillar of the Earth". Kind of hard getting into it, but I have read that is is excellent.
