:tiphat:

Hi guys....I'm a Newby so just wanna introduce myself...my name's Shelby...I hail from the land downunder.......and I have an absolute total love for the written word....it transports me....makes me feel like I am escaping myself for a bit....it was my only escape from the horror that was my life for 8 yrs of severe domestic violence... It soothed my sad broken heart/soul....made me live thru another day... . So all in all....books are and always be my saving grace....

Welcome! :text-welcomewave: :text-welcomeconfetti:


I'm glad books helped you through that. They really can be the thing that gets you through. :tiphat:


This thread is the best place to start. :reading-4:
Sometimes you need to take peoples' minds off their problems if you want those problems to resolve themselves.
...Not all problems can be fixed. Sometimes you have to wait until the situation changes.

Welcome!
In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you." (Mortimer J. Adler)
