Hi everyone! My name is Margie and I am a book-a-holic! I am so happy
that Maria has started this Book Club!
I remember falling in love with books in 1st grade! I read every "Dick
and Jane" book that my teacher could find for me, lol! From then on, I
was a regular at the library...
After I graduated and jumped into the real world, I didn't have time
to read, many years passed by, until I became sick with Lyme's and was
home for 3 months with absolutely nothing to do... During that first
week, I dragged myself to pick up some groceries and went by the
magazine isle and found "Stir of Echoes" by Richard Matheson (the
original first release hardcover) and started reading again! It was
like finding my long lost friend! I have fallen in love quite a few
times with different books and authors, but I was never a "saga" or
"series" type of person until I met Richard Paul Evans' books and
Harry Potter! Now add Twilight to the mix and I have been one very
happy girl! I just got caught up with the whole Sookie Vampire/
Charlaine Harris books - I'm not 'head over heels' about them, but it
has been a good storyline to follow in between other reading.
I have been married for 5 1/2 years and we have two yummy lil boys,
Nicky is 5 and Matt will be 3 in June. My family totally knows and
supports my book addiction! I have recently started collecting Baum's
'Oz' books and other classic stories written in it's original
entirety. I've also been trying to build up a mini-library for my
boys, who I hope will love books as much as I do (since Dad won't read
anything other than the newspaper!) - right now we've been going
through all of Dr. Suess' books; and I already have Harry Potter,
Narnia, and The Spiderwick Chronicles waiting for them to get older.
Right now I'm looking into Limony Snicket's - A Series of Unfortunate
Events, I'm not too familiar with that storyline and what I do know
about it - I don't like much, lol! There are 13 books! If anyone has
any info, I'd greatly appreciate it ;)
Oh, and I do have other interests! lol! Even though I haven't been
able to since Matt was born, I love to draw! My fave medium is pencils
and chalk. I'd like to get back to that sometime soon... I also love
to scrap! and blog! and doing my challenges with my sister and the
Twilight gals! If I have a lil spare time, you can also find me on
Facebook and Twitter ;)
It's so wonderful to see so many people here! I pick up my book
tomorrow! I cannot wait to get started!!!
