Wild-Eyed Bibliomaniac

One of the greatest gifts my mother gave me was the love of reading. One of the best gifts I have given my three children is the love of reading.

I love everything about it. Searching for a new book. Browsing piles of books with unlimited possibilities. The fluttering I get when I have found my newest true love. Ah, yes! There is little better than a great story. One where you are transplanted into another life, another world, another dimension. Anything is possible and everything could happen.

Oh what a sad life it would be without books and the stories they tell!

With all of that being said, there is such a thing as a bad book. Life is far to short! I was raised on the founding principal that once you started it you should finish. Well, that just left me feeling guilty and stuck slugging it out through a book that, well let’s just say that it didn’t work out.

I am going to use this site to share the books that consume my time. I would love to hear books that you love, ones that you hate, and don’t forget those ones you love to hate!

Everything here will be from my heart and will hopefully encourage you to try a great book. I will call a spade a spade and will not hesitate to let the world know that there are tooooo many good books to put up with just okay!

Hello!

I believe you're a fan of Lord of the Rings, and I wondered if you'd like to profile it for www.bookdrum.com, where you can add information, images, video, music and links to illustrate and explore the book.

There's $3,000 in prizes to be won by the best profiles.

Best wishes
