Welcome

A Bookaholic, Pro-life, Pro-Family, Pro-Oxford Comma, Catholic (with Asperger's) who reads and writes as her obsession. I've been reading over 400 books a year lately. These are my ramblings on some of the books I read. To read about all the books I read and comment on, visit me at LibraryThing or Goodreads.

I've been blogging since 2007 and at this point (July 2015) am trying my hand at turning the theme of this blog towards mystery, thriller, and crime, fiction and nonfiction. I have some special interest topics and categories within this broad genre which include (but are not limited to) serial killers, scandi-crime, Victorian history and historicals, history of the criminally insane and asylums, psychopathology, death, funerary practices and burial, corpses, true crime and anything dealing with the real life macabre, or that portrayed in fiction.

I also read a short story a day from various collections, sometimes anthologies othertimes collections of a single author's work. These reviews are also posted here and while they are of mixed genre the mystery, thriller, horror, gothic and macabre often appear within their pages as well.


I also blog about
graphic novels and manga on a separate BLOG.

James Herriot's Treasury for Children

James Herriot's Treasury for Children
illustrations by Ruth Brown & Peter Barrett
unpaginated
finished June 25, 2007
rating 5/5

First sentence:

There have been times in the winter when I have regretted being a vet and this looked like one of them.


Recommend: Yes. This is an omnibus edition of 8 of Herriot's children's picture books. I read it aloud to my 7yo and he enjoyed it, but I think I may have enjoyed the stories more than he. They are wonderful, touching stories with beautiful illustrations, especially the ones by Ruth Brown.
