I got married: Neckole Sterling now... Thanks for the good times

I have moved... address is updated and mail is being forwarded

I love to read; I have since the day I learned. This is a great site for those of us willing to trade, loan, or just release. And I am getting the hang of it. Thanks to all of you for sharing. I will also be updating my bookshelf. I have registered most of them though ; )

You are welcome to ask for any of my books but I can't promise I will release them. I will consider it. My Permanent Collection is open to borrow; I will loan my TBR even before I read them; I get books, I buy books, I am given books. There is no end to my TBR. I love books. I love to have full bookshelves.

My books range from romance, to thriller, to horror, to my newest fascination with vampires, werewolves, the netherworld. Kim Harrison, Keri Arthur, Kelley Armstrong, Rachel Vincent, all of those wonderful writers. I have enjoyed reading what they have developed in strong women characters. However, my bookshelf in no way reflects what genre I am currently reading. Sorry for any confusion.

I have purchased many books for my kids, 10, 13, 16. They are a new generation of readers and it makes me very proud. I will be adding a page for them (3littlelizards) so they can learn to do the same, share their joy of reading. I only ask that you PM me if you see anything on their bookshelf as I check my email more often then they. Thanks!

Any recommendations are always welcome. Any RABCK, bookrings, bookrays, and bookboxes are greatly appreciated.

I have started my holiday gift giving a little early...I always find it hard at Christmas to really get involved in the gift giving thread due to my holiday spending. So, with all the holidays coming I figured I would give away a book a month until January 2009! Keep an eye out on the Wishlist forum and see how it goes. I will try to post on the first of the month happens. Please post in the forum once you have received your book so everyone knows what you got, thanks. Good Luck to everyone!
