Embrace life. Read a book.

About Looks Like Books

Thanks for visiting Looks Like Books. I’m Mary, your host and Chief Troublemaker here at LLB. Honestly, I’ve been regularly lost inside the pages of a book since I learned to read. There is no other interest or hobby that brings me as much pleasure as reading a book.

Are you a wannabe reader but not sure what to read?  I started this book blog to help others develop the same love of reading that I have. I hope to inspire everyone that visits with that same love of books. So, happy reading!
