Welcome to my bookshelf! I love to read and have since I was a little girl...and now my children loves books too.I love the smell of books and the coziness of a bookstore or library. I admit that I do judge books by their covers. I love a beautiful cover. I like fiction,poetry,some horror,memoirs, bizarre books, short stories..and lean towards stories about women or books that pull at my heartstrings.I don't usually like romance,chick-lit,or mystery.

I am slowly but surely trying to get through the books on MT.TBR and pass them along. I am interested in trades,but can only ship in the US since my budget is very limited right now. I love bookboxes but am going to make an effort not to join anymore for awhile.

PLEASE don't ask me to join any bookrings or bookrays..I can't commit to the time constraints. thanks.
