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’s […]

Mischievous Eyes

A friend of mine liked this photo on Facebook today.  I’m not sure who deserves credit for it, but it started me thinking about something.     The phrase on it, “Here’s to all my girlfriends who will help me cause trouble in the nursing home” made me think about my mom’s time in assisted […]

Thank You, Ms. Lee

A friend texted me just moments ago. The great Harper Lee has passed.  I’m not ashamed to say I am shedding a few tears. Before  JK Rowling and the Harry Potter series, Harper Lee was my first literary hero.  I know – heroes are a dangerous thing, and perhaps we shouldn’t have them- but I […]
