My First Official Goodreads Blogpost

Since I'm not a tech person at all, I didn't know that content from the blog from my website was not automatically coming over here. I'm starting to find my way around the technical parts of Goodreads and finally figured out that I need to add the material manually.

So here goes.

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

“True love stories never have endings.”
Richard Bach

Donna Crow Thank you for the invite, Maryann. I don't use Goodreads as effectively as I should--can't always seem to get current reads to load, etc. But I occasionally get a review out. Am currently reading a new author Gwyneth Bledsoe. May put up a review if I like the outcome.
