About Me

Me and Sam

Hi there and welcome to my blog! My name is Darlene and I’m from Canada and I love, love, love to read.  If you’d like to contact me personally you can do so at this email:  darreads@gmail.com

I’ve liked reading from a young girl-my mom would read to me and I’d read back to her. I’m running out of room to put all these books already, yet I keep buying more. Now I own a few eReaders which has made things even worse as I have more books on them than I can possibly read in a lifetime. It’s a serious addiction.


I had a dog named Buddy who I had to put down in October of 2010. He was my kid and I loved him with my whole heart. He was a sick boy though and I had to put him down at 8 and 1/2 years old. I decided that a new puppy would help heal my heart so I got Sammy who is a bright ray of sunshine although he’s also a load of trouble still. He runs the house, he runs his mommy and I’m sure he’s enjoying every minute. He’s my new reading baby; the only thing he needs to be taught is not to chew mommy’s books. Every Sunday will include pictures and sometimes a video of Sammy as he goes forward in this adventure called life.

I especially love the summer months and sitting outside reading with the dog. I also like knitting and crocheting so along the way I may post some of my crafties. I hope to those who visit that you’ll return and visit often!

In memory of Buddy, May 25, 2002 – October 22, 2010. I love you my little man and miss you always!
