About My Library
My 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.

I wish my library was as varied as it is extensive. I have books from one end of my house to the other. I have books in every corner of my classroom. At any given moment, I probably have half a dozen books in my car. I always carry a book in my purse. If I never bought another book again, I probably would not run out of reading material before I died. Of course, that won't be happening.

I am currently reading:

Harlem Shuffle by Colson Whitehead
About Me
I teach high school English and world history. I have four children. 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.
