Hi there! Check out the books on my Keeper Shelf...all the books I put there are dear friends.
We all have favorite books, the ones we read over and over again. Look closely at the picture and you'll notice many of the books have worn and weary spines...well, they've been with me a long time.
You will also notice a few shiny, new ones: I had to replace Naked In Death, because the original copy was held together by generous amounts of tape. Cynthia Eden is a relatively new discovery, but now she's on my Autobuy list. And Lifethread is a story close to my heart and the first published book written by my talented Critique Partner L.J. Charles.
Whatever the age of the book, they all have one thing in common -- they are keepers. I know these stories by heart, but I never grow bored. I know all the twists and turns, but they can still make me laugh and cry, my heart pound and my soul cheer. In other words, the stories are so good, they are timeless.
To find out what makes a good story(in my humble opinion), check out the post I did for my friend Rebecca Zanetti.
