Every Day is a Gift! Enjoy Being!

I discovered this "World-Wide Book Club" from a local newspaper article. I love the idea of connecting to other book-readers for the purpose of sharing good books & also book reviews. My bookshelf is always growing & I am always willing to trade books that I have previously read. My bookshelf lists a variety of books collected to appeal to a wide-range of readers, but it does not necessarily reflect my taste in books.

I am an artist/painter. I specialise in watercolor & acrylic paintings celebrating nature. I also enjoy being outdoors & walking in the woods and mountains, travel, music and of course, reading books. I am never without a book to read and have discovered so many wonderful books from this site!

BOOKS AVAILABLE FOR TRADE are marked with an"available" filter tab at the bottom of each bookshelf entry. Start searching by clicking on the "available" filter located on this page under Libby2's Books, Select Filters, upper right hand column.
