Welcome to PLUM-CRAZY's Bookshelf
I just love reading (surprise, surprise!) & I also love to buy books - I can't resist charity shops & library sales so many of the books on my shelf are for releasing rather than reading - I like to send books travelling. This means my shelf doesn't really reflect my taste, my reading list is a better indication of my reading habits & anything that piques my interest goes on my wishlist.
While I mainly read crime/thrillers I'm always open to something new (though I don't read biographies or sci-fi)
Basically, if you're good enough to send it, I'll read it...eventually ;o)
I do love a good grisly murder! - especially where the main characters are mavericks, outsiders or just plain off-the-wall, & I've recently discovered the delights Scandinavian crime fiction which has given me a host of "new" authors to catch up on. Working my way through the following crime/thrillers is an on-going pleasure & I can highly recommend each & everyone of the following series:
As well as reading, I love crosswords & quizzes of any sort & loud music!! -
it's gotta be rock; hard, heavy, metal- whatever,
I'm also hooked on the game "DARK MANOR" & I'm playing as PLUM HALL - in case you play too & I happen to appear on your "invite friends" list!
For those in the 2014 Birthday group:
I'm easy to please as anything goes & it's just lovely to receive something unexpected. I'm always happy to try anything edible... I like milk chocolate (especially praline/truffles) I love liquorice & suffer from a serious addiction to Lion's Midget Gems & Sports Mix.
Stationery & Bookcrossing supplies are always welcome both from the store or homemade...in fact anything handmade is much appreciated. I've recently (Jan 2014) decided to have a go at making fabric book covers, fancy buttons or other embellishments would also be appreciated - if/when I get the hang of it who knows, one may be coming your way, just got to learn to stitch in a straight line first.....here are my first attempts :o)
