About Us

Hi My Bookish Friends

I love to read and I am known for always carrying a book with me.

I have a huge weakness for buying books and if you could only see my bookcases and piles of books you would say the exact same thing.

I have always had a love of reading and this lead me to a job working at a bookstore. (sadly I no longer work at a bookstore).  There was no better feeling then helping a customer find a book or recommending something that you loved.

Apart from reading and being a stay at home mom other things that interest me are: shopping, meeting up with fellow local book bloggers, getting together with friends, taking pictures, going to book related events (book sales or meeting authors).

In August 2008, Cindy’s Love Of Books became another passion of mine. Since starting Cindy’s Love Of Books, I have discovered a whole new world contained in the pages of books.

With my blog I’ve reviewed, profiled, discussed many books and their authors. I have been reading and reviewing picture books, middle grade books, young adult books, fiction, cookbooks and some non fiction books.

I’ve come to know many other bloggers and can claim to be good friends with several. It is in this community that I have found myself involved with professionals that are a joy to work with.

I appreciate everyone who visits my blog.

If you’re an author or publisher, feel free to contact me through my Contact Me  page.

Happy reading!

Who am I?  Well, I wear many hats, as I’m sure most of you do. I’m a wife, mother of two (14 and 10.5, the half is very important), piano teacher, interpreter for Deaf individuals, and Youth Minister at our Parish.

However, remove the hats and I’m someone who becomes very excited when book shopping with my BFF. Being surrounded by children is an enjoyment. Reading books and listening/playing music are my passion.

Books that draw my attention are those with creativity and intrigue. It doesn’t matter what age the book is geared towards, if it is well written, I will read it.  Any story that includes other books, music, magic, mystery, and chocolate are what I tend to gravitate towards. I relate well to books that take place in Canada and I do my best to include Canadian authors in my repertoire.  Books are timeless. One week I’ll read a book published in 2018 and the next week I’ll read a classic. Seasonal books are always fun to read as well. They help put you in the mood.

Thanks for reading and please let me know if there is a book out there that I should get my hands on.
