Books

I love to read!  Ever since I was a little girl, I have enjoyed getting lost in the pages of a good book.  And I love to talk about books almost as much as I love to read them!  Here on this page you’ll find links to my “reviews” of some of my favorite books.  Enjoy, and feel free to give me a shout if you’ve read any of these and want to chat, or if you have a recommendation to share with me!
