I wonder if a blog should have a mission statement? Like why did I create this blog? What is it's purpose? What do I hope to accomplish? I guess I would answer that I want to share my love of books with others. I am often asked my friends, relatives and co-workers about "what's a good book to read?". Hopefully, I can share my choices here and that others will also share their opinions. I really want to hear from others about books discussed and books recommended.
I have to admit to a lifelong love affair with books. Even as a very young child, my favorite gift to receive was always a book. My favorite places to visit are libraries and book stores! My children have become great readers, and now I am working on my grandchildren! My oldest grandchild, Lexie, is 8 and is becoming an excellent reader. Perhaps she will share some of her favorite children's books with us on this blog!
I think that my first few posts will be of lists of books that I have really enjoyed over the past 8 years. In 2000, I began logging books read, with notations about how I liked them. Hopefully, the lists will give others some ideas of books that they might also enjoy.
