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.

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.
