About Me

Greetings and welcome!  I'm Melissa and I've been blogging on and off for roughly nine years.  Some years have been significantly better than others, but I try to keep up on it.

Things that I tend to feature on my blog:  a series of Top Ten lists (mostly book related) in conjunction with many bloggers, teasers from whatever book I'm currently reading, a series about non-bookish things about me (again, with a multitude of other bloggers), various reading challenges, and the occasional book review...of which I need to do more.

Some things about me...
  • I'm an avid reader.  You'll always find me with a book on my person and, often, with some beverage in hand...like so...
Though more often than not that beverage is coffee...
  • I have a kitty named Penelope.  She's a piece of work...

  • I live in a small college town and work for the university where I received my undergraduate degree.  Things come full circle, right?
  • I lived abroad for two years; one while teaching English just outside of Vienna, Austria and the other while working on my Masters Degree in Comparative Literature in Edinburgh, Scotland.
  • I have worked in retail (glitter-filled days of hell), corralled small children for several years, and taught composition and poetry at a community college.
  • My dream job is to be a writer and live in Europe...sigh...
  • I like coloring :)
Thanks for visiting and reading!
