Who Am I?
I try not to pretend what I’m not, but aim to be who I really am.
I’m terrible at exercise, science and math.
I’m very good at analyzing a thing to death.
I am a recovering worrier and pessimist.
I am a book shopaholic and yard sale/thrift store addict.
I am a devotee of period dramas, lists, efficiency and commas.
I am a native born Pennsylvanian but just a passin’ through.
I adore the exotic and adventurous, from the safety and comfort of my couch.
I collect little animal figurines to decorate my book shelves, books (of course), and am making a scrapbook of the paper ephemera I find in books.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ.
I seek to improve my mind.
My guilty pleasures are Pinterest and ice cream.
My vices are exploring on my laptop and staying up too late doing so.
I dabble at watercolor painting and silk ribbon embroidery.
I blog about books here, buy and organize books, sell books elsewhere, and volunteer and strive to get paid for reading books.
I don’t live in a dream world. The backside of a shabby apartment building overlooking a Kingdom Hall parking lot is my reality. You can usually find me here scheming it big, or out on the trail hunting my next “big game” for resell, or in a little fleece blanket studio in a windowless basement behind a microphone.
