My love affair with books began when I was a little girl. I remember walking in to our teeny tiny town library and searching through the modest children's section for Mrs. Piggle Wiggle books. I loved the smell of that little library and I still respond to the smell of books today. A bookstore must be browsed; moving to a new town, the library must be located. Used book stores are always full of treasures and my Amazon wish list is overflowing.
As for me, I am a wife and a mom of an eleven-year-old and an eight-year-old. I read books written for the middle grades, young adult literature, adult fiction and non-fiction. I read whatever appeals to me. I started this blog to help keep track of what I've read and also to make recommending books easier. I love to share a great book with my friends and I love to hear what they think about it. I used to be a member of an outstanding book club, but it fell apart when five of the seven of us moved out of state in far too quick succession. It was a sad year. Now my greatest book discussion outlet is you, Smart Girls! I review what I read, but I also like to talk about my favorite parts and I often include favorite quotes. I do try my best to avoid spoilers, but I give a warning when it can't be avoided. Mostly I just want to talk books. Let's share. Let's discuss. I can't wait to hear what you think!
