First I want a big big applause for Bonnie, for rallying us to join here. I cancelled my Oprah membership a month ago, and I hate to gloat, but.......I do! LOL! It's such a shame she is pushing old members out like this; but hey..who needs Oprah? We can do this too you know!
I don't read much these days, one book at a time, and that one book may take weeks. I joined this group for old times' sake. It's nice to meet the Book Buddies and Islanders again. And even if I don't read much, I can still connect with y'all. And that's my main goal right now.
For those who never heard of me: I am Dutch, in my early 50s, married with two grownup kids. And an empty nester who still doesnt' have enough time to do everything she loves to do. That could be Reading, Quilting, Crochet, Take long walks, Eat, Sleep, Caring for 3 cats and 3 chickens (of the egg-laying variety, we will never eat THEM!), stare out the window to watch the rain, watch soccer with hubby..
My daughter visited Dublin a month ago, and she also went to the Dracula museum. She read Bram Stoker's original, and told me this would really be up my alley. I'm in chapter 3, and it's SO gothic, it's great! Not a bedtime story, but really really good suspense. What kind of books will we read? Classics? Modern? American? Asian? African? European? Or maybe a theme? Like 'strong women', 'fantasy', 'gothic', 'young adults'.
Sorry for running too fast, again! I am working on that you know!
