I’m always looking for friends on Goodreads that have similar tastes. I like learning about new books and discussing them with others, so I decided to experiment with a new idea and thought it would be neat to find readers that I’m friends with on Goodreads and share them with you. Maybe they might be someone you’d like to add too. As I find readers with an interest, I’ll introduce them.

Did you enjoy reading as a child? If so, what were some of your favorite books?
I started reading more as a teen but always enjoyed books. In the olden days, when TV’s were black and white and the only channels were CBS, ABC, NBC and PBS, and before such things as video games, many of us kids would gather at each other’s home for what was commonly referred to as story time. Neighborhood moms would take turns reading to the kids. Here is where I fell in love with stories. Some of my favorites were:
Mark Twain’s, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
and The Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Wilder.
What are some of your favorite books this year or last?
This year, some of the books that made my favorites list include:
American Gods by Neal Gaiman
The Stand by Stephen King
Everything’s Eventual by Stephen King
Hinds’ Feet on High Places by Hurnard Hannah
In the Shadow of the Hanging Tree by Michael A. McLellan
What are your favorite book genres?
I love most fiction, specifically, Fantasy Adventure, Post-Apocalyptic, Thriller, and select Mystery. That is not to say I don’t also love some true stories if written in a well entertaining way. Such books would include An Innocent Man, by John Grisham, and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer.
