When I'm not reading I'm at work or involved with my wonderful husband and son. Son is a senior at college, a couple of hours away, so I don't see him as often as I would like.
And just a note on my name, WarEagle78. If you aren't a fan of US collegiate football, you might assume I'm a warmonger of some sort. Not true. Actually, "War Eagle" is the yell for the sports teams of Auburn University, a public university of about 25,000 students in east-central Alabama. Football is a quasi-religion in this part of the world, and I am not unusual in the least.
But I'm spending more time than ever at Paperbackswap . There I can get the books I really want - even though I consider myself a good and reliable Bookcrosser I hate to ask others to send me one of their books. At PBS you "buy" books with your credits for sending to others. I still keep the books logged in Bookcrossing because, after all, I really want to see where they end up!
