Hello, and welcome to my blog. Do I have to tell you that I like books? You probably suspected that already. Like most other book bloggers, I’ve always loved to read. My TBR list is continuously growing, but I try to feel undaunted by that fact. I am originally from Germany (Hallo, Deutschland!), but I now live in the mid-Atlantic region of th eU.S. As a mother of three with a full-time job, I don’t have quite as much time to read as I would like to have, but my books help me unwind at the end of the day. Well, sometimes, it’s in the middle of the night…
I read anything that sounds interesting, though you won’t find much fantasy, science fiction, or YA here. I prefer historical fiction, historical non-fiction, and classic literature. Some of my favorite books are Persuasion by Jane Austen, The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende, The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster, Burial Rites by Hannah Kent, People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks, The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton, and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
I started this blog with the intent to read “strings” of book, picking a new book because it is mentioned in a previous one. But I can already see that this little experiment won’t work for me. There are too many books out there that I want to read. I will continue with my concept nevertheless, even if some strings will grow rather slowly. I think it will make me read books that I would otherwise not pick up.
