jingles Hi! I'm jingles! Thank you so much for the invite, Lizz! I love your groups. There's always something fun going on.

I live in the southern part of the US. I'm mom to a wonderful, but mean, long-haired Dachshund...black and tan. He's a cutie, but pretty much a grumpy old man. Lol.

I'm looking forward to visiting and talking about books with everyone.

I work in oncology and couldn't imagine doing anything else. My job soon will be transitioning to work from home which scares me and excites me all at the same time.

message 18: by Monica (new)

Monica (nutz4reading) | 10 comments Hello and Lizz thanks for the invite. I just now got around to seeing it. My name is Monica, I am 51 years old, divorced. I have 2 adult children, a daughter who is expecting her first child, my first grandchild! And a son who isn't married and does not plan to have any children. He live with his partner/fiance. I used to have a dog Named Samantha, but I unfortunately had to put her down earlier this year. I miss her and would love to have her with me to curl up and read with. She was a beagle/basset mix.

I work full time in a school district special education department as one of the secretaries. I love my job! I also sell Avon on the side and work at games in the school district for extra money.

I really need to get my reading mojo back. I slacked off on my reading this year.


Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 97 comments Mod
Welcome Monica congrats for the first grandchild and I am sorry for you loss. I had to put one of my dogs down three years ago.

Oncology is a heart-first job. I thank you for your service. That's a wonderfully awe-inspiring profession.

Roseanne (rschmread) | 2 comments Hi all. Thanks for the invite Lizz. I have been busy studying writing craft. Writing and re-writing my Works In Progresses. It's put a heavy damper on my reading habit. Glad to be here.

Joanna (joannalauren) | 1 comments Hi I'm Joanna/Jo. I'm mostly into thrillers and romance, as well as some non fiction such as memoirs and self help/development. I'm hoping to get into classics and to broaden my reading too! I'm new to all this but thanks for having me x

message 35: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Barringer (Ravenmount) (ravenmount) | 2 comments HI. My name is Jamie. I read a lot of books, 300+ per year usually, including a lot of crime fiction, fantasy, science fiction, and classics. I'm working on reading all the books on the Guardian 1000 novels list and Boxall 1001 Books lists, and like to have lots of variety in my reading. I also am currently one of the lead admins for the Dewey's readathons. If I could make a financially viable profession out of reading and readathons I would. :)
