books. One of them is
not reading them."

|"A room without books is like a body without a soul."
~ Marcus T. Cicero ~
|The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man: nothing else that he builds ever lasts monuments fall;
nations perish; civilization grow old and die out; new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have
seen this happen again and again and yet live on. Still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling
men's hearts, of the hearts of men centuries dead.
~ Clarence Day ~

|Welcome to the innermost sanctuary of my world. Where dreams are created,
worlds are discovered, and escaping can become a daily occurance.
|At last count in 2007, I had over 400 books. All of which I have read and many of which I have read repeatedly. There are
some that I can flip to a certain page and reread a favorite passage, knowing exactly where in the book they are. Most of
the books I read are romance or paranormal romance (vampire, witches, werewolves, etc.). I also love historical
romances, being swept away to the past in practically another world and imagining day to day life and how different it
was. Some authors are very skilled in their descriptions and are true to the time period in which they bring you. You can
really tell when an author has taken the time to research a time period and be able to provide specific details.
I also read medical thrillers, mystery / suspense, science fiction / fantasy, and I have also been known to dive into
Shakespeare. For obvious reasons (going back to the fact that I have over 400 books), it would be impossible to list all
the authors I read from, however I can list a few of my favorites with the authors' websites. I have also found a couple
pics of some covers, just a few favorites and some from a few of my favorite series. Click on the authors' names to be
taken directly to their site - if any start to not work, please let me know. I'll try to update it if any get changed.
