About meI teach high school English, juniors and seniors. I have four children ranging from college age to kindergarten. I don't remember ever not knowing how to read as I have always done so. My dream job would be to get paid to read books. I probably would be expected to write something about them afterward, and I am willing to do that too. If you know where I can find said job, please do let me know.
About my libraryMy library is primarily fiction. I love historical smut. I love psychological thrillers as well as rambling, wistful tales. These past few years I have been working on broadening my horizons by reading books set in more varied countries. It has been enlightening indeed.
