Okay! my first post! and what better than to start with a survey on what I like. I got this from Lost in Books and thought it would give you guys a good idea on what kind of books I like etc etc. Anyway! I’m finally up and running in this book blog and I’m hoping I come across some real good books from you guys and I hope you like what I have chosen and reviewed as well! (Reviews won’t come up for a while..I’m reading 4 at the same time and that’s no small feat I’m used to reading one at a time..it’s a long story…but to make it short: certain books I have taken out of the library have been put on hold by some bastard so now I have a time limit to finish some books curses to that bastard!!) *shakes fist*
