Hello all from small town Arkansas!

Post by Musings of A Book Junkie » Wed December 28th, 2011, 12:23 am

Hello fellow HF lovers!
I am a small town girl reading her way through the world! My husband says I have a problem, but I disagree!!!
I love books based in Ancient Egypt and Greece. I recently discovered the Ancient Celtic period.
I run a blog called Musings of A Book Junkie.
I'm very glad to be joining this awesome community!!
May the TBR pile grow and grow!!!
Allison
