I am a lover of books. I enjoy reading for many reasons and you can still find me huddled in a corner reading when I have the time 😉 I come from a long line of readers. My grandmother had shelves of books, my mother has shelves of books, and I have shelves of books.
My personal favorite flavor of literature is historic ficiton, with maybe a hint of romance. And of course, my dream is to someday write a book. I have had some delightful characters in my anscestry that deserve to have stories written about them. That goes on my ‘someday’ list.
If I could, I would have a personal library with built in bookshelves and a large leather chair right next to the large bay window with a roaring fireplace nearby where I could dedicate myself to reading for hours with mountains looking down at me through those big bay windows…ah, someday 😉 If you would like to check me out on GoodReads, you can click on the link in my footer, or you can see my book selections on Pinterest.

It is not written for… Continue reading Three Men Came to Heidelberg
