Hello, I'm a newbie to the blogging world (can't you tell?). Please have some patience as I get the hang of things.

My purpose for blogging is to join the TBR challenge a fellow bookie mentioned. The challenge is to read 12 books on your To Be Read (TBR) pile: books you always wanted to read or just never got around to reading. Being a compulsive book buyer (or hoarder), I have a mountain to read.

What can I say about myself? I'm a stay at home Mom to an active 4 year old girl. Obviously, I'm a big reader. The last book I read was "The Shadow of the Wind", a great read. It's a book about a book and some serious bookaholics! It's a great mystery, if that's what you're into. I belong to an online book club: The Classic Club. We read one Classic a month. Right now it's
"A Farewell to Arms". I also love to Scrapbook.

Right now, I'm "between houses". I sold my last house and am now living with my mil- in her basement anyway. It's...umm...cozy. I can see a lot of reading getting done through the winter!


  1. Yeah!! Now I will have some company as I'm trying to navigate this whole "blogging" thing!! Cool!

  2. Congratulations, Christina! Your blog is beautiful! If I'm not careful, you girls will have me doing this, too!

  3. Congratulations, Christina! Your blog is beautiful! If I'm not careful, you girls will have me getting the blog bug, too! LOL!

  4. Hope you like Willa Cather's O Pioneers. I've enjoyed reading it more than once!

    Congratulations on your blog.

  5. Hi Chris! I found you through a backtrack from my site. Looks like we share active 4-year-old daughters and a love of books and writing.

    Congratulations on your new blog, and your reading goals. Nice to "see" you!


  6. Thanks Susan! I had been reading your blog but after I moved I lost the link. I just found it again. Glad to have found it.
