  1. My gosh, the blogosphere has brought me a literary friend as well as an arty friend! You blow me away with your reading, lady! I thought I was voracious, but I'm a nibbler in comparison. You should post some reviews of which ones you loved and would recommend to your blog readers!

    My latest kick is to read the classics I was supposed to have read by now. Like Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility (which I liked much more than P&P), etc. I realize that some classics just aren't my thing and others are marvelous little treasures to have finally found!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I'd like to read your thoughts.....
