Book Reviews

Hi! My name is Maranda and I am an addict. My drug of choice is books. I've been looking for reform programs and have not found any to suit my needs, itches, twitches, and cravings. Over the years I have become accustomed to my addiction and do not think I could survive without it. Therefore, I have dedicated this page to the books I am currently reading and a few that I have read in the past. Some titles contain links to my thoughts on the books.

I urge you to proceed with caution as this drug is extremely addicting and can push you over the edge with me.
