New from NC

Post by greyartist » Sun January 30th, 2011, 11:30 pm

Hi, I wanted to say a quick hello before diving in to the forum. I have just discovered fiction, hehe, I have always read nonfiction books. Mainly ancient history. I have found that it is much more fun to learn about a culture through a story then just reading the facts. I hope to discover lots of great books to try out. Oh and I absolutely love audiobooks. I can listen while I work on the PC.

Hi Carol. If you like ancient, try Pompeii, by (mumble) Harris. I heard that in audio format and sat in my car in the driveway to finish it!
