Do you ever wonder about the people behind the posts? I almost always check the ‘about me’ page when I visit a blog because it’s interesting to know something about the people with whom I share the blogsphere. I don’t think my page would actually encourage anyone to stick around my blog, so I thought it would be time to jazz it up.
The following is true:
I have been a life-long reader.
Here are the books waiting to be read…and yet I can’t stop buying more.
Here’s what I added May 7, 2009
I am married and have two kids and my husband, daughter (12) and son (10) are all avid readers. We have two cats: one is neurotic and a pain, one is a delight. We live in a port city on the East Coast of Canada. I work in Education, but I have also worked in the fitness business, the food business and the television business (most recently with the now-canceled Canadian Antiques Roadshow).
Besides books I love (in no particular order): King Cole tea, Pinot Grigio, snail mail, Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel, (and David Boreanaz), Lost (even though when we watch my husband and I are constantly saying, ” do you know what’s going on?”), travel (I have lived all over Canada, in the States and in England), cooking, running, the beach, writing/blogging, my book club, hanging with ‘the girls’…
I belong to two book clubs- one I started 10 years ago and we meet once a month. It’s a terrific group. I also run the book group at a local book store. It’s a small group, but we’re chatty, so it’s fun.
I have a long list of favourite books which include: The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger; Velocity by Kristin McCloy; Billy Dead by Lisa Reardon; Promise Not to Tell by Jennifer McMahon; The Banquet, Magdalene and The Story of the Weasel all by Carolyn Slaughter
Did I mention I have too many books and not enough time?
