Introduction

If you want to know about me click my name. That tells what you need to know in a nutshell.My philosophy is to enjoy life and respect others, all animals too. I'm not a church goer. I've never been able to decide if I'm atheist or agnostic. My 20 year old son is a dead set atheist and he gets all het up when I extend the possiblity of the agnostic bent. I like to read literary fiction and also history, but not genre. I've never met a science fiction or fantasy book I liked.I was an English major when I wasn't being an art major. As a high schooler and college girl I read so many classics. Now I never read anything from the 19th century or earlier. Sad, but I can't seem to enjoy what once enthralled me. Maybe the time will come...There are so many books to read. I sometimes feel guilty reading when I could be doing chores.The best book I read this year was Eve Green by Susan Fletcher, a girl from the Midlands, UK. Fletcher is only 29, but wise beyond her years. Her insight into human nature and the mystery of her writing captivated me.There is a Scottish women on another forum who clues me into good UK books and sometimes has the same taste as me.I often can't make it through a book so don't finish if it doesn't do anything for me.I figure I have a lot to learn. I'm not much of a debator so Booktalk may not be the perfect fit for me. The tone here is uber rational and that doesn't seem my profile, but I'm willing to give some of these intellectual books a try. At any rate, I'm looking forward to reading all that is here and getting to know you! Edited by: AnnetteS  at: 11/13/05 6:07 pm

Welcome, Annette! I have a great respect for all animals too. It appears that you have beagles. I have two mixed-breed dogs that I love like children. I hope that you enjoy BookTalk!

AnnetteWelcome to BookTalk! We're not all about "debate" here so stick around. You'll fit in just fine. With the addition of fiction I'm hoping to see you in the discussions. Chris
