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 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!
"QuizUp" is a recent addiction & I play there as Plum-crazy, if someone wants to take me on :o)
In Jan 2014 I decided to have a go at hand stitching fabric book covers & have sent a few out with books. I'm not the neatest of workers & they are by no means perfect but I'm enjoying making them & aim to send out more this next year. Here's some I made earlier :o)
As at 30th October 2014

When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched.
But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold."
