"It sounds like the smell of raspberry tastes" -Terry Pratchett in 'Making Money'

We are a small -but select!- group of readers who have very differing opinions on different books and genres. For example, Hedgehog (that's me!!!), prefers an action/adventure book to romance, and loves Agathe Christie and Terry Pratchett (I love the 'little grey cells'), while SuperLibrarian prefers detective to sci-fi. (So no aliens allowed then.) We all read a lot so this is going to be fun. Have fun and happy reading!!! P.S. I hope you like our home page :)
