Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.


It's been a while since I've been here.  So much has happened this year which cut down on my reading time especially for the last four months.  I went on five vacations.  My mom sold her house and, as my one sister said, "Mom moves and us girls have to clean our houses."  I have been cleaning up and clearing out my house since July and I am still not done.  I'm about 1/3 of the way through.  Then the holidays came.  And finally I retired today, New Year's Eve.  Hopefully I'll get my house cleaned and more reading done.
