Everything I read and was able to post about in 2005. Entries dated on the date each book was finished.

I've been taking photos since I eagerly asked for and received my first camera on my 12th birthday. Naturally, I was made for scrapbooking. I also enjoy knitting, quilting, and swimming. I used to be CreativeExile; my email still reflects that!

Lost & Found

I started reading this BEFORE I started In Her Shoes (see below), but had to put it away. Don't get me wrong, I love all things British, but reading Brit slang and cultural references without a break gives me a headache.

I'm sure under all the (Bridget Jones-inspired) half-speak and wink wink there was a decent character in here somewhere, but there were no surprises in anyone and you knew exactly who was going to end up with whom right from Chapter One. I hate that.

Or maybe I missed the point of the author's characterizations because I didn't understand the references. But hey, I understand Pilcher just fine. You don't need up-to-the-minute pop culture to make a great read. In fact, I think you're better off without them.
