Hi everyone! I was an active member over a year ago but life happened and I havent been reading as much as I used to. I'm hoping to get back into books and take more me time. I can't imagine reading anything but Historical Fiction so I'm back :) . It's nice to see familiar names still posting and new ones too. I look forward to getting reaquainted with my fellow book lovers. :)
