Hi! My name is Emily.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Here is a little bit about me.
I am an avid reader and try to read as much as possible. If a book is really good, I will read it really fast. I love getting lost in a good book - I love staying up late into the night to finish a good book. I read as much as I can, and sometimes that is a lot and sometimes it feels like it’s not enough. I’m always looking for something new to pick up and get lots of good recommendations from my high school students.
A few years ago (2011), I started a book blog, because my friends and family were constantly asking me what they should pick up next. Then I discovered the wonderful world of Goodreads and discontinued that blog. I have been addicted to the Goodreads ever since, but recently I’ve wanted the ability to do a bit more than read, rate, and review. This blog is a place for me to keep track of what I read and my thoughts about the books I've read as well as my thoughts about all things reading, and hopefully make some connections with people who share this passion.

Besides reading, I love to travel, enjoy skiing and snorkeling, and occaisonally scrapbook. AND I am absolutely obsessed with my dog!
