Welcome friends! I have started this entry in the global technosphere because I have been in love with books since the age of 2. Among the busy business of being a new teacher, this is my outlet for sharing thoughts on a love of reading a wide variety of books. My inspiration can be summed up with a yearbook quote from a teacher written when I was 8: "To the only girl at recess I see reading a book. Good for you!"
My blog title is quoted from a classmate who asked me this once. Believe it or not, I've also heard it as a teacher :D

My Top 25 Favourite Books

I haven't posted this before for a couple of reasons:  one is that my A+ reviews probably speak for themselves as to what my favourite books are, and two, it's *just too hard*

But my love of list-making trumps all :)  I like the top 25 lists @ Two Bibliomaniacs, so I decided to create one of my own, and allow it to change as my tastes do and as the books I read multiply.
