Greetings from Maryland

Post by DebB » Tue October 26th, 2010, 10:01 pm

Hi -- I joined some time ago but am only now introducing myself (being the procrastinator that I am). Born and raised in Hollywood, California; have lived the last 25 years in the Washington, DC suburbs; have 2 kids, 1 husband, 2 cats.

I REALLY don't need any more suggestions of authors and/or books to read -- my bookshelves are crammed; my TBR stacks are toppling; books are littering my floors and cluttering my desk, night stand, and dining room table. But, of course, how can I resist recommendations from this group of readers???

Hi Deb, nice to see you here but be warned - we are dangerous when it comes to book suggestions ;) :)

Ah, Misfit -- You're already to blame for many of the books in my TBR stacks!
