Thanks. Maybe I'll try it after all....
I'm also a fast reader, but not getting much time atm for reading as the school year comes to a close. My eldest has just finished HS, but my youngest finishes around Dec 17th for the summer which is really late :(
Have you read Jurassic Park? totally not my thing, but surprisingly I'm enjoying it. Will browse your shelf and see what goodies I can find :)
I missed this note, still trying to figure out Shelfari. Your collection is substantial against mine! Thank you for the recommendation, I'll have a look into it.
I'm currently reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower, it's avert truthful and sad story but it has me hooked.
If only there were more time for reading.

YOU are walking on Miami Beach in Florida; the sky is dark and threatening to rain. You see a handsome Egyptian man walking down the beach carrying a leather pouch over his right shoulder, he looks back anxiously, as if someone might be following him but when he does so he stumbles and falls, spilling the seeds in his pouch. Asim hurriedly picks up the seeds, counting them as he drops each one back into his case.
It starts to rain and he quickly rushes off, not knowing that he has lost a single seed. It starts to rain harder as you see something protruding from the sand, and then a beautiful red rose grows almost instantly. You must be seeing things.
You approach the rose and when you bend down to examine it something amazing happens.
“Quick,” says the rose. “Hide me before he comes back. I grant wishes and all the wishes he wants are evil ones. Please take me home with you.”
You dig up the flower and head back to your hotel.
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. But I continue to write and hope.
You have a nice shelf.
I hope you are reading lots of interesting books.
Knights of the Dragon:
Leander is under siege. It seems their wizard is dying. A dragon befriends a boy and hires knights to save his kingdom. Alexa is a match for any man, except perhaps for Stone; they’ve had eyes for one another for years, though neither will admit it. A dragon is born that turns out to be a wizard, a rare dragon indeed.
And there are whispers of a boy wizard.
It’s a tale of wizards, dragons, romance and knights.
