A New Blog Is Born

Today is a day of new beginnings, so, Wah Lah, a new blog is born. I won't bore you with a number count of books in the book pile.
A bit of history first.
My Mom has been an avid reader since a very young age, consequently, she made sure that my sister and I would grow up with the same love of books and reading as she did. I've tried to pass that love onto my sons, that is still up for debate.
She always told us that as we learned to read and discovered the world of books we would never be bored, and she was so right. If you are truly an avid reader you can lose yourself in a good book and many hours have passed before you even realize it.
We are a very eclectic bunch of readers, so one of my goals with this blog will be to share what books we might be reading and maybe give our personal reviews of those books.
I have a good friend who is writing her first novel. She even thinks it might turn into a trilogy. It's been very exciting to see her pick up something that she had started many years ago and make a new commitment to really pursue a dream. We share many reading interests also and she has promised in her spare time to help me find some interesting reading sites that I might be able to pass along . Stay tuned,you might see a new best selling author emerge right before your eyes because I'm already her biggest fan so I'll be sharing her progress on the road to becoming published, with her permission, of course.
I will be putting some links on the side bar in the coming days and weeks as I grow this blog. I will be starting out with baby steps and I hope that this blog turns into something special like my card making blog has for me. Like that blog, this blog is for fun, and  passing along a little bit of enjoyable information.
Your comments and observations will be welcome, so don't be shy, keep checking back, you might read about something new to you. It never hurts to add to your knowledge.

Thanks for visiting,
Beverly G ♥
