Hello, another TNBBC-er here from Pittsburgh. I'm 31, living with my boyfriend of almost-5-years and two big dogs - up until just a couple weeks ago we had three, but we sadly had to put one down. I took time off reading to grieve, which is new for me as generally reading is the best psychological medicine. I enjoy finding books that aren't as common as others, and these challenges have been extra incentive for me to look outside the box.
Outside of the book world I'm currently a medical secretary for a group of surgeons, though in a week or so my responsibilities will be restructured and exploded, thus a new title (I am told) is coming my way. I read on a bus to and from work so I try to get a good chunk of reading during that commute; I wish I had a job I could read through, but any reading I get done is on my lunch break. Work and books (and the dogs and, once in a while, the boyfriend) make up most of my life, but I occasionally amuse myself with mosaics or watercolors, or fussing in our garden. When money and time permit we like to travel, particularly Canada and Europe, and when money and time can not permit I do what I can to read about those places.
As always, thanks Cynthia for continuing these great challenges!
