Re: From Sherlock Holmes (the young one) to Dr. Moreau to Downton Abby-esque

There are so many new (to me) authors that it's hard to choose who to read first! I'm excited about all these books & I wish I were really rich so I could buy them all at one time! Well, that's not going to happen, but anyway, I try my hardest to buy all the newest (& oldies but goodies also) books on the market! I love reading, & I'm really not picky about what age group I buy. I love reading children's books as much as I do young adults also. I am just as happy reading a 250 page novel as I am digging into a heavier reading of 900 & some odd paged book. Unbelievable, I know, but like I said, I'm not picky & I'm an avid reader, so I've always got my nose stuck in a book! Hopefully I can win a few too! ;)
