message 1: by Jenn (new)

Jenn (welloflostplots) Hi! Jenn here from Oxford MS. I've checked out some of the threads and it looks like you guys have a great group here!! A little about me. I'm 31, married and I have three step-kids, two of which live with us. I'm an academic advisor at a local University; and, I'm working on my Ph.D. in Higher Education administration. In between all of that, I usually manage to squeeze in about 30-50 books in a year.

I can't wait to start interacting with everyone. :o)

Are you currently saving money like its going out of style or expecting to kiss all your spare cash goodbye?

Saving, definitely! Though, I'll always splurge on a book or two for myself, my husband or my step-kids.

Are you strong of will, or weak of heart?

I believe I'm very strong of will. I have to be to keep up with my life!

Are your bookshelves quite bare and dusty, or currently a little tight of space?

I love books! My floor to ceiling bookcases (I have five) are chock full with very little space to spare. I'm slightly OCD as well, as they are alphabetical by author.

Hi Jen, glad to see you are saving money and are strong willed, you will need to be strong in order to not spend all the stashed cash on the new books you are going to be reading about in here!!!

Welcome to the group!
