This is how you can usually find me – with my nose in a book.

“I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, THIS IS ME”

welcome to my corner....

I’m not here to just take up space in my corner of the world. But my hope is that I will inspire others to begin or continue their reading journey. Reading is a journey of a lifetime!

In case you haven’t noticed, a few of my favorite things include books, anchors and the ocean. You don’t have to be around me long to figure those things out. 

Reading is my passion! I’ve enjoyed it since I was young. My favorite books to own are kids lit, old books and series of books. I have quite a few but I somehow find more to add to my library. It always amazes me that we focus so much on the new, but the truth is there are millions of amazing backlist and old books. Books stand the test of time – not many things do! 

Literary Confessions:

  • If I don't like a book, I skip to the end so it's complete.
  • I like to rescue books, so I don't buy new very often.
  • I never read a "bestseller" or "mainstream/popular" book until I'm confident it's actually worth it.
  • I like happy endings. Yep I'm that person.
  • Dystopian & Fantasy will never be in my TBR pile. (I know some of you will never come back after reading this).
  • I'm a firm believer in reading whatever you enjoy!

Enough about me, hopefully you go explore the books! Feel free to drop me a line and be social. Get anchored in books!

I’m creative but deep down I’m a perfectionist. This causes quite the dilemma. I tend do things myself to make sure it’s done right – I’m working on this. Whether it’s painting, web design, interior design, home renovations or crafting of any type…I have probably done it.

Negativity drives me crazy! So, you won’t find me typing out my frustrations, political views or any other destructive words. I don’t even watch the news. I choose light and not darkness. Sunshine is so much better! We moved to Sarasota, Florida 10 years ago to be closer to the beach and sunny days!

I am a rule follower, but I do love a great adventure – as long as I don’t break any rules. I’m always up for trying new things  – food, traveling, anything on the water! I think I may be more adventurous via the books I read than I am in real life. Oh well, my reading life is adventurous and that’s good enough for me!

In my mind I’m simple, as in I’m not high maintenance. And I would like to live a simplified life, that hasn’t happened yet. So maybe simple is a stretch for words describing me.  

As in by brain never turns off!
