Welcome friends! I have started this entry in the global technosphere because I have been in love with books since the age of 2. Among the busy business of being a new teacher, this is my outlet for sharing thoughts on a love of reading a wide variety of books. My inspiration can be summed up with a yearbook quote from a teacher written when I was 8: "To the only girl at recess I see reading a book. Good for you!"
My blog title is quoted from a classmate who asked me this once. Believe it or not, I've also heard it as a teacher :D

  1. Hi!
    That's quite a list of books. I've read several of them. I loved The Kite Runner but didn't really care for Middlesex. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  2. You managed a lot in a short month, especially a lot of reviews!

    I've been wanting to get to Middlesex for a long time.


  3. Thanks Sherrie & Sue :) Middlesex is certainly different & I could understand if it wasn't everywhere's cup of tea. I'm intrigued by it & it's getting more interesting by the page.
