My love of reading was born before I went to school. My parents read with me all the time and taught me to read before I even started school. This is where my love affair with books began. Whenever my Dad went away with work, he came back with a book for me. Weekly trips to the library happened too. My Mum is still an avid reader and reads a lot more and a lot quicker than I do. If only I could get her into doing book reviews!
I have joined many sites on the internet and taken part in many forums, based solely around books. These include readitswapit. This is a great site to swap books with fellow book lovers and all it costs each party is the postage. I am also a member of Goodreads and BookCrossing. See my resources tab for all the links. I try to leave reviews on all books I read.
I am a lover of paperbacks and my kindle, and still read from both. I use Smashwords, Amazon and NetGalley for my Kindle books. I still love to visit the library too. Basically anywhere there is books, I'm there. I went to London for the weekend with my husband and visited Waterstones in Picadilly, which was on five floors. I could have spent all day in there!
This blog will reflect my love of books of all genres. Some of the books I read and review will

I love to review books and review them on Amazon, Goodreads, NetGalley, and link them to my Twitter and Facebook account. I review both paperback/hardback and e-books.
I encourage you to leave your comments on all books reviewed, be they positive or negative.

My husband and I try to take at least two or three holidays a year and in between holidays, we go for weekends away or nights away going to see musical theatre or concerts. So I will tell you my travel tales too. I'd also like to hear about your travel adventures if you are happy to share them on my blog.
I am available for holiday advice too! lol.
