Greetings and Welcome! Thank you for visiting My BookShelf and Profile Page!

Yes, my Profile pic really is a photo of my knees - but not close enough to see the scars! (LOL!)

******************************************************************************************************************

All you need to know about me is that I read (and read and read and read . . . .), probably more than is good for me! I keep threatening to read less and get out more - but I know it isn't going to happen
And that I love BookCrossing and English Country Dancing, although I'm not as active in either field as I used to be!

And all you need to know about my family is that I have one: a husband, two daughters, one son-in-law, one partner and a grown-up grandson.
