Hello from an avid reader.

Post by CharmedReader » 23 Jun 2019, 17:21

<r>Hi Everyone! My name is Ann, and I enjoy reading and writing very much. So what better way to spend my time than writing about what I am reading, right?! I got hooked reading romance novels when my cousin gave me a box of Harlequins that were published in the 60's, but also read Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels as well as non-fiction. I'm currently a preschool teacher aide, so I'm definitely exposed to a variety of children's books as well. I've written one customer review for Alanea Alder's book, <I><s></s> My Solace which is currently listed as one of the most helpful on Barnes and Noble's site. I hope to write more, just as helpful, for other books. I look forward to reading your reviews and posts as well and join in on some of the discussions. Until then, take care! <E>:techie-studyinggray:</E></I></r>

This thread is the best place to start. :reading-4:
We are temporary creatures, and we know it--that's why we fear the dark, after all, that's why we build walls and light candles to keep it out.
