Welcome to PLUM-CRAZY's Bookshelf
I just love reading (surprise, surprise!) & get through, on average, 2 or 3 books a week.
I also love to buy books - I can't resist charity shops & library sales which is why I've probably more books than I'll ever read, though I still buy more but that's the fate of bookcrossers....
Any book I buy will travel on (at some point), as do any trades or RABCKs I receive as I like to keep books moving whether it's to another bookcrosser, a wild release or a donation to a charity shop ......with the exception of Graham Masterton's horror novels which are very gratefully received into my permanent collection! hint,hint... :o)
Oh, & the Stephanie Plum series are all keepers of course.
I love a good murder! - especially where the main characters are mavericks, outsiders or just plain off-the-wall.
Working my way through the following crime/thrillers is an on-going pleasure & I can highly recommend each & everyone of the following series:
....& having recently discovered the delights of Scandinavian crime fiction, I'm catching up on Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy, Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole & Camilla Lackberg's Patrik Hedstrom series. These have also led to me finding a whole new set of excellent authors to read such as Karin Fossum, Arnaldur Indridason, Asa Larson & Hakan Nesser.
As well as reading, I love crosswords & quizzes of any sort & loud music...
it's gotta be rock; hard, heavy, metal- whatever!
I especially love Thunder, Terrorvision & Nickelback although my current heroes are
Black Stone Cherry.... if you're a fan too, PLEASE let me know!!!

But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold."
