||I love to read. I love to be "taken Away"; to become lost in a wonderful world of love , loyalty, adventure, mystery, romance, and respect. Then to find a book that carries me away to Outer Space, or foreign Lands, or a world far far away. I want "good" to triumph over evil. I want true love, heroes "to die for", heroines that are worthy of the love of their hero. Give me villains who receive their "just desserts", but cause all sorts of problems before they face justice for their "bad" behavior. I am thrilled to be a member of this new forum. Thank you, Essielou, for starting this forum, and for setting it up so that we can all have a SAFE place to gather together.
