About meI'm a female from the Toronto area, mid 40's and I work part time. I love reading, and will read almost anything if it's good. Not that I haven't read my fair share of trash, some of it even on purpose :) I try to get in some classics as I'm quite lacking in that area, but new stuff comes out all the time luring me away with their shiny new covers! I participate int he 75 book challenge and have yet to actually accomplish it but each year I get closer.
