You know me, the book worm...

Even if you just stumbled onto this blog seconds ago it won't take you long to figure out how much I love to read. I say all the time that I would rather read a book then talk to any one person. And the bad thing is that is pretty darn true. One of my teacher assistants that always sees me carrying a book asked me how many books I thought I read a in a year. I responded with, "Well, theres 52 weeks in a year, so I would say 45 to 50 books a year". In the summer I can usually read a book in 2 days or less. When I was 12 I read Black Beauty in one day and Little Women in 4 hours. I have always been the kid with my nose in a book.


So imagine my excitement when I came across the Goodreads website. This website is like a facebook for books. If you are a fellow book lover you need to check it out asap. Goodreads also sponsors all kinds of book giveaways that you can enter to win for free.


Which is how I became the lucky recipient of this:


It is a signed copy of Diane Chamberlain's Keeper of the Light. And I won it! I cannot wait to read it. I have been a huge fan of her's since I picked up Summer's Child last year.


I seriously carried this book around for a day trying to show anyone that would listen to me go on and on about how cool it was that she had signed it. Don't worry, I'm totally okay with being a nerd.

I love to read! Now I've got my Nook and it seems like I just fly through books. Some of Diane Chamberlains were free to download recently and I can't wait to get started!

I love to read, too, but don't do it nearly as much as I used to! How cool that you won a signed book :)
