Welcome friends! I have started this entry in the global technosphere because I have been in love with books since the age of 2. Among the busy business of being a new teacher, this is my outlet for sharing thoughts on a love of reading a wide variety of books. My inspiration can be summed up with a yearbook quote from a teacher written when I was 8: "To the only girl at recess I see reading a book. Good for you!"
My blog title is quoted from a classmate who asked me this once. Believe it or not, I've also heard it as a teacher :D

Book Blog Hop & Friday Fill-Ins

Happy Friday!

Two intriguing memes to participate in today!  I'm working this afternoon so I'll make a quick post & hop around later today.

A weekly meme hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy For Books
This week's question is from Becky @ Becky's Barmy Book Blog.

Where is your favourite place to read?  Curled up on the sofa, in bed, in the garden?

At night, it would definitely in bed with a pair of cozy PJs, a warm blanket, and propped up with a pillow and my burgundy stuffed "wedge" to keep my back supported.  During the day, I like the couch with the footrest up & the back reclined with my feet curled up & snuggled into the thick armrest.  Aaahhh....that's the stuff :oD

A weekly meme hosted by Janet @ Friday Fill-Ins.  My answers are underlined; the rest is given.

1. One of my strongest beliefs is in humanity.

2. My TBR list is huge!

3. The sky is cloudy with a threat of rain and wind and cold, so reading is on the agenda!

4. My family is comforting to me.

5. I always thought I'd be a teacher.

6. The room was suddenly bathed in white and then I went outside to look at the full moon.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching a football game, tomorrow my plans include reading & hopefully finishing Pride & Prejudice and Sunday, I want to book more work for next week!

Have a great weekend :o)
