It's my Birthday

It is my Birthday, I am celebrating ME.  Happy Birthday to Me..... I'm 36 years old :-)

I wanted to celebrate with you and decided I will do 36 facts about me, some book related, some not.

I am a girly girl, love the glam of life but I choose books over makeup.  I love a beautiful garden to look at but in my books they need to have a dead body included to really intrigue me, lol

Hope you enjoy, I know 36 is a lot, I kept them short.

Also, my blogoversary was Aug 29 and I chose to create the event Thrill Week to celebrate. This will be an annual event now.  I had a blast and thank those that participated and commented.  Blogging is such a bonus in my life, I appreciate all of you.
