About me

I'm excited about hosting my first book challenge, The Welsh Reading Challenge, which now has it's own blog :-) Check it out!

I am a single mother of three beautiful daughters, ages 10, 15, and 16. I read with my kids almost everyday (I shoot for everyday, but sometimes life gets into the way of that.) I've got a broad interest in books, from Junie B.s I've fallen in love with the series from reading it with my 10-year-old, and we are heart-broken because we've read all of them!, to Stephanie Plum hilarious!, and authors like Lois Lowry, Harlan Coben, Ray Bradbury, and Stephen King. I also have a deep love of the classics.

I'm doing the 75 Book Challenge, and I'm reading about 2-3 books a week. I only wish I was a speed reader with a photographic memory... sigh... so many books, so little time!
