Seven Things About Myself

1.)  I am married to a wonderful man and together we have 5 terrific children ranging in age from 29 to 16. My family is so incredibly important to me.

2.)  I read everyday. I always have a book, usually 2 or 3, at a time. I love to do reviews on the books and share my reviews with others.

3.)  I am a dog lover!  I have had a dog in my life since I was 5. My dog Simon is a mini dachshund and is my husband’s first experience with being a dog owner. Simon is quite the character, and is almost as stubborn as I.

4.) I love to read debut authors to get a sense of their style and skills.

5.)  When I review books, if I think the book is terrible, I will not bash everything about it. I will write down what I dislike, but always try to counter with something positive.  I always remember that the authors put so much effort and love into what they write, and even if I don’t care for a book, the next person may love it, and I wouldn’t want someone to pass up on a book simply on my say so.

6.)  I love to write and my blog is my way of doing so.

7.)  I don’t belong to any reading groups as I like to read what I want, when I want. I’ve tried over the years but as soon as I’m told what book to read, I no longer want to read it.  I just really don’t like to be told what to read.

April 23, 2012

I just checked out some blogs and left some comments. I’m always curious as to what other people think of the same books that I have read. I do like to make up my own mind regarding books but it does help to see what other people think especially when I’m trying to decide what to read. I received 2 more books today to review. They are Catastrophically Consequential by Stephen C. Bird and Dutch Schultz, the brazen beer baron of New York by Nate Hendley. I will be posting my reviews here as soon as possible.  Happy reading!
