I was a small child when I first accompanied my dad to one of the libraries in Stockholm. I still remember that special feeling as we walked in the door and I saw the books ~ row upon row of books. And so my love of books began and that love has continued throughout my life. I don't read romances or books about vampires/werewolves (lately though, I must confess to having read two excellent books wherein a few characters left no shadows). Most other books are welcome, as long as the writing is good and the book grabs my attention early on.
