About meI am a 48 year old female who has worked at a local hospital for nearly 30 years now; initially has a Pharmacy Technician and now as a non-clinical person in the Emergency Department. I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree with an English Major in 2011. I am single and share my home with a Yorkie (or she shares it with me) and my yard with eight very amusing and friendly goats. I am very active in my local United Methodist Church and District where I am a Certified Lay Servant.

Reading has been a long time passion of mine, as well as a love of writing. It's fair to say the reading aspect is a whole lot easier to excel at than the writing. However, I intend to continue plugging away at both. My reading tastes are various, though I admit there are some genres I probably need to better expose myself to.

Since 2013 I have been working on a reading challenge that consists of completing the following lists, with my current completion rate as of December 2017.

2006 MLA's 30 Books Everyone Should Read Before They Die (93%)
Random House's 100 Best Books of 20th Century (16%)
Pulitzer Prize Winners (31%)
National Book Award (4.2%)
Newbery Award Winners (18%)
Caldecott Award Winners (6.2%)
1001 Books You Should Read Before You Die (5.7%)
Biography of all U.S. Presidents (2.2%)

About my libraryMy entries in LibraryThing reflect my various reading tastes and is probably 95% complete in regards to the books I actually own. I currently need to get to work on including more book reviews.
