Hello

Post by enchantingdragon » Wed September 9th, 2009, 2:15 am

Hi. My name is Jasmine. I am new to this forum but not to reading, especially historical fiction. I mostly like English and French history though can be tempted to branch out. I look forward to getting to know other book lovers here as well as find new books to add to my ever growing TBR pile.

I have a small little book blog as well though I just started it so there isnt much there yet
