I have been reading this forum for a few weeks and decided to join! I am an avid reader since age 3 or 4. My favorite genre is historical fiction-though I am not bent toward any one time period. I look forward to reading everyone's suggestions and reviews!
Let books be your dining table,
And you shall be full of delights
Let them be your mattress
And you shall sleep restful nights.

Hi Christy - thanks for signing up and hope you have fun! And welcome to you from another Southerner.

Please check out members' reading logs as well as the reviews and suggestions. You may want to hand your checkbook or credit card off to someone you can trust to keep it from you - taking suggestions here can be expensive. Or just haunt your local library!
