I read because I must. It's like breathing to me. And I love talking about books. But I'm also an Arsenal fan, a wine drinker, a music lover and weirdly obsessed with pop culture. I mostly blog about books, but sometimes about things I'm thinking or doing. When I'm not on the blog, I'm scoping deals for a professional services company, hanging out with friends, or seeing some live theater.

Whole 30 Day 2

Day 2 wasn’t quite as easy as Day 1. I got a pretty obnoxious headache late in the afternoon.  I think not quite enough of the right kinds of food, and certainly less caffeine. I went  to dinner with some friends. My dinner?  Burger, no bun; mustard only with lettuce, tomato, and onion, and a […]

My blood pressure is periodically high. My blood sugar is edging towards bad numbers. My allergies drive me crazy.  I feel like I’m […]

The Sunday Win(e)d Down, 24 November 2013

I finally got caught up on a couple of reviews. I posted my thoughts on I Am Malala yesterday.  My review of Angela Correll’s Grounded will post late Tuesday morning.  I just finished Nora Roberts’ The Dark Witch and have just started A People’s History of the United States 1492 to the Present so lots of reading going on. I have friends doing […]

The Sunday Win(e)d Down, 17 November 2013

Welcome to this week’s brief recap or download of all the things in my mind. While I did finish Carry On, Warrior I didn’t blog about that or I Am Malala.  I had an unexpected death in my family this week, and it threw me big time.  I am hoping to get those written this week. I am […]
