Oh, where to start? I'm an avid reader with lots of other interests that both drive my interest in and are driven by books. I started on Shelfari originally, around five years ago, I began a group called Play Book Tag. Amazingly now, it is my most passionate hobby. I love literary fiction and memoirs. Each year I try to read 50 books, but I rarely ever get there. But the fun is in the trying!! Other loves include: alpine skiing, chocolate, actually any and all food, running (to compensate for the food), learning new things, and Survivor! I have two sons, ages 15 and 18, and my great husband AND can't forget my cockapoo.
