There's Something About...

...books, writing, language, my place in the world, and so much more. Here I share my experiences and thoughts with all of these. The three most important things you must known about me are my love for mornings, my need for coffee before I accomplish anything, and that I am more confident in my written thoughts than in my spoken ones. Below are two featured topics and a link to my contact page, but you can access all of my posts by clicking "Blog" in the drop down menu above. Join me in my annual Reading Challenge, tag me in a Book Tag, share my posts (and follow me) on social media, and tell me what you're reading (I'm on Goodreads, too.) Thank you for visiting.
