I have an affinity for books. Truth be told, I’d own a bookstore if they weren’t so passé. My dream would be to write a book (who knows, maybe I will someday). I am fascinated with what I learn about myself in books, and how emotionally connected I can become to a well developed character. My love affair with books started when I was a child (remember Nancy Drew?) and it’s grown by leaps and bounds as I’ve gotten older. A good book can keep me up well into the early morning hours and leave me feeling sad when the story is over. I know I can’t be the only book lover out here so I wanted to have a page where we can discuss books we’ve read or are reading.

So what are you currently reading? What have you read? Would you recommend it?
