Extended Profile


I wish to thank TexasWren and Dawni for the great tips "for the colors" in my profile!

I love books by British author 'Jilly Cooper' to simply pass time and for good laughs. Read the following books of Jilly's:
Pandora / Riders /Rivals / The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous (absolutely my favourite) /Polo / Octavia / Appasionata / Harriet / Class / Bella / Emily/ Work & Wedlock/ Imogen & Prudence
Yet to read the following of Jilly's:
Angles Rush In/Bella/The Common Years/The Book of Humorous Stories/Lisa & Co/The Score/Jolly Super Too (please help me find this book)/Intelligent & Loyal and others.
Thanks toCliff1976, I am able to share My Wish List with the world!!

I find the idea of leaving books out for others to find simply great for cleaning out your bookshelves and for making new friends.Currently, I am trying to read some books which I had bought some time back and any others that fellow BC members are willing to trade, swap, or RABCK
I look forward to meet like mind ladies (35s to 45s age group) who like to buy books and then exchange them with each other. Please get in touch with me!
