About meI live in Dublin. I get most of my reading done on the DART (commuter train) everyday. I have once or twice missed my stop with my nose in a book. I love a good book and want to get recommendations without any spoilers - I like a surprise. I am in the 75 in 2011 and Orange Jan/Jul groups. I have the most beautiful cocker spaniel in the world - Ralphy - he is more of a thinker than a reader.
