I have an obsession with books. I think I've always had it, but it really started around 2004 for I moved to Samos for good, and had to find a hobby to keep me busy throughout the dreary winter. I started off with only four books, which I devoured in a little less than 2 weeks. Every time I go back to the States I shop for more books. One year I brought back 70 books. That was before you had to pay for excess luggage. Now I am a little more picky! I have a few favorite authors. Ann Rule, she is from the Seattle area and writes about true crime. Jodi Picoult, who is amazing and will keep me up at all hours of the night reading until I finish her story twisters. Then there is Marian Keyes, an Irish woman who writes chick-lit and has written probably my all-time favorite book, "Anybody Out There." I've bought that book in Greek and given it to my cousin who LOVED it. Too bad I can't find more of her books in Greek.
My bookcase. The books to the right in black are the Twilight ones. Yes, I am a fan, and a dork!

 A new book I've yet to read by Jodi. I love the blanket around the girl's shoulders. I think I might knit one like that soon for myself!

What's on my nightstand  right now. "The Godmother" by Carrie Adams. It's actually kinda good so far.

My favorite book, I highly recommend.
I donated and gave away to friends last year about 200 books. I've kept only the ones I'd like to read again. Do you have any books you'd like to recommend?
