Here's a little info about me:

I graduated from college in December with a teaching degree. I couldn't decide what I wanted to teach. I love reading and talking about books, so high school English was an obvious choice. I also love to work with little kids. So I just decided to do both. I am licensed to teach pre-k through 3rd grade or high school English. Now I just have to find a job in one of those areas.



I have a little boy who is a year and a half old. My world revolves around every little thing he does, especially since I am a stay at home mom for now.

I have a huge collection of children's books because of my son and I'm building a classroom library for teaching elementary children. I may list some of these on my bookshelf, but will probably not send them out since I want to have them when I start teaching. I would, however, appreciate any donations you want to make to my classroom library.

I haven't been as active on here since I started back to school, but I'm going to try and work on that.

I realize that most of my books are labeled in my Permanent Collection. (I just can't seem to let them go, and I reread alot). If you see one that you would like to borrow, just let me know. As long as I get them back I don't mind loaning them out. There are a couple that I won't loan out because of sentimental reasons. I would be upset if something happened to them or they got lost. So please understand if I say no, but most of them are available.

My TBR pile keeps growing, I'm sure I'll never catch up with it. Then again I hope I don't because then I wouldn't have a new book waiting when I finished one. I don't know what I would do then. ;o)

I would love to join bookrays and bookrings. I don't get a lot of time to read right now, but I'll try to pass them on as soon as possible. If it looks like I may not get to read a book soon, I'll just pass it on anyway so that I don't keep them too long.

You're Adventures of Huckleberry Finn!

by Mark Twain

With an affinity for floating down the river, you see things in black
and white. The world is strange and new to you and the more you learn about it, the less
it makes sense. You probably speak with an accent and others have a hard time
understanding you and an even harder time taking you seriously. Nevertheless, your
adventurous spirit is admirable. You really like straw hats.
