Holiday Weekend Update

Leave a comment

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!  Not much to report here, but I just had to share that The Hubs scored huge points yesterday (Friday).  While I was wallowing in self-pity for having to work, he finally started reading The Hunger Games!  The overall struggle was just getting him to open the darn book, and after weeks of urging, he’s well into the first book and really seems to be liking it.  I’m just super excited that he found a series he can invest in over the next few weeks.  And last night, he asked if he could have his own notebook to jot things down in, so I happily gave him the new Da Vinci journal I picked up at HPB a few weeks ago.  This afternoon ShortMan is sitting comfortably in his ass-groove soaking up the adventures of Katniss and I’m swelling with pride (and a little bit of that I-told-you-you’d-like-it attitude).

I live in a Chicago suburb with my husband and a house full of books. Book collecting, reading, and reviewing consume my life. I have a special affinity for all things Alice in Wonderland. I began my education at Carthage College, wanting to be an English teacher. Eventually I decided that Carthage and I weren’t a good fit anymore, so I transferred to North Park University, where I realized I didn’t want to be a teacher. So I finished my education with a degree in English with a writing concentration. I was always a voracious reader and wrote my first review in April 2007. I don’t remember why exactly I decided to write a review, only that I had just finished The Agony and the Ecstasy and had a strong feeling that I needed to express how I felt about it. This inspired me to write reviews about each book I wrote and after posting on Amazon for two years, I was invited into the Amazon Vine program. I am also an active reviewer/member of Goodreads and enjoy being an active member of the online book community.
