I just saw this note. I don't get many/any notes on Shelfari. Also looked at your shelf and will use it for reference. I am always looking for books! Reading a book right now called Stash. Put it on a list in 2010 and never got to it. Not literature but not insulting so perfect for an end of summer day.
Hello Adrienne S,
Let me paint a picture with words:
You are in a forest with the sounds of a flowing brook nearby. A light breeze brings in the scent of pine trees and honeysuckles. You look up and hear a woodpecker on a nearby tree echoing through the woods and it brings a smile. Never having been on this forest path you follow a peculiar trail of roses that starts on the trail and leads off into the deeper woods. It’s a strange place for cultivated roses. One rose after another; they beckon you to follow them. The scent is light and wonderful, sparkles of purple float up from the flowers into the wind and drift off.
“What on Earth?” In a hole in an oak tree you find three small bottles of honey. A single drop of honey on your tongue is so sweet and delicious as if you haven’t eaten in a week.
“That is my honey.” The voice is a big one though not threatening.
You come face to face with the big red dragon. “Oh my.”
You have a nice shelf.
I hope you are reading lots of interesting books.
Dracula: Hearts of Stone is about a suicidal Dracula (he’s a good guy in this trilogy) that must snap out of his funk if he is to help save the world from evil vampires. He's created vampire sheriffs to battle the bad guys but they're being overrun. Piers Anthony (the author) is trying desperately to get him to jump into the battle. It's a tale of vampires, wizards and romance.
Knights of the Dragon is about a dragon that hires knights to help save Leeander and a young boy that the dragon cares about.
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published every month it is a little discouraging. I didn’t think there were that many writers.
To all my Shelfari friends...

Sounds good. I'll follow you too. My reading includes some books for my local bookstore book club, and also I am in a small group (along with my husband and one friend) reading the Pultizer fiction winners. Most of them are pretty bad...
Beautiful Ruins was one I read on my own. We met the author, who was delightful, as was the book.
Next month we are reading The Art of Fielding, I am very excited about it. Everyone loves it.
My sister lives in Chappaqua, and many many many years ago I was the department manager of the mens' furnishings at Lord & Taylor in Eastchester...
