About me"I speak to these people, and I speak to you because I cannot help it. It gives me strength, almost unbelievable strength, to know that you are there... How blessed are we to have each other? I am alive and you are alive so we must fill the air with our words. I will fill today, tomorrow, every day until I am taken back to God. I will tell stories to people who listen and to people who don't want to listen, to people who seek me out and to those who run."
-Quotation from What is the What by, Dave Eggers

I'm a science nerd / postmodern Christian / bibliophile and I aver that the absolute best thing about commuting via public transit is the vast amount of time in the day I get to spend reading! I dabble in writing as a wannabe novelist (just for fun) and like to pick up all sorts of crafty things (knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, scrapbooking). I also love the Chicago Cubs - even if they break my heart in post-season ball. I'm a cross-genre reader and LOVE good books of all sorts!

About my libraryMy library is a delightful mix of fantasy, biography, mystery, romance, history, thrillers, young adult, classics and whatever else I've felt like reading lately! Check out my tags "recently read" for books I've just finished; "TBR" for the next ones I'm planning to read ; and "wishlist" for ones I really want to own!

Feel free to leave a comment saying you stopped by!
Happy Reading To All & To All A Book Light!
