  1. whew! you’re quite fast! hehehe. im also starting to take note of the books i’ve read so i can share it to others too. but unlike you, im more into contemporary, mystery and crime, and chick flix šŸ™‚

    • I like to read all kinds of books, really. It’s surprising to me, though, to see how few mysteries I have read lately. That used to be about all I read! Thanks for the reminder!
