About meI'm such a book nerd, I work in publishing. I do most of my reading during my commute (thank goodness for mass transit). I just love reading. I am always looking forward to the next book. I love words, etymology, grammar, puns, etc. I'm so far gone, I swear.

In that same vein, I am always looking forward to my next meal. I love to eat and cook. That is my other hobby. I also have seven cats that are THE BEST company for my love of reading. I am an atheist, married, from PA Dutch country, and 6 feet tall. I participate in two book groups. That about sums me up.

GroupsCats, books, life is good., Girlybooks, Happy Heathens, Hogwarts Express, Humor, I Love Jane Austen, Literary Cuisine, Pedants' corner, Reading Globally, Wine
