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.

    Hi there!
    My name is Gwen. I have been searching the internet for a parental review of ”THE LADY VANISHES ”2013 version. Yours is the only one I have come across. I’m looking for a clean movie for my husband and myself. Is there anything to be concerned about [sex, nudity, language, profanity, etc..]?
    Thankyou so much!

      Thanks for commenting! It’s been a while since I’ve seen this film, so I’m sorry I can’t remember all the fine details. But I don’t remember anything majorly offensive to me. That being said, everyone’s movie standards differ. No sex or nudity, but some heavy kissing. I will refer you over to another movie review site that I trust (written by a Christian woman), and her review will probably give you more details you are looking for. Plus, you may find some other good movies she recommends! See below:

    Do you happen to have a copy of the Midday Connections book club discussion questions for Frankenstein (2005)?
