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.

It Hits Random, and Hard

I ran to Target last week and began stocking up on a few things for the Holidays.  As is my custom, I bought three rolls of wrapping paper.  I thought nothing of it, except ensuring that the colors coordinated and the paper has the guidelines on the under side to make it easier to cut […]

Remembering 9/11

Another non-book post. Sorry. The book reviews are coming back soon, I promise.  But I want to talk about 9/11.  I’ve never been able to talk about it easily, without it taking me to a very dark place, and I was thousands of miles from it. There will be plenty of “I remember where I […]
