This week’s question: Who are You the Boy/Girl, instead of You the Blogger?

I’m Jess, and I just turned 30 in December. To my relief, it was not at all devastating like I anticipated it might be. :) I’m a mom to a sweet, beautiful girl named Abby. She’s 9 and has zero interest in books, to my dismay, but I’m still working on her. She will love books one day, this I swear! Lol I’m engaged, with no wedding plans quite yet, to a *cough* younger man. Five years isn’t really anything, right? We’ve been together 6 years. I know, I know..marry him already. Yes, yes..heard it already. :) Can’t say I particularly love my job, but I love where I work. Working for a community college does have it’s advantages. By that I mean it includes TONS of paid holidays. In fact, I’m about to be off a whole week for Spring Break! :D Sooo, that’s the gist of the girl who’s Gone with the Words…


Book Blogger Hop

This week’s question: If I gave you £50 (or $80) and sent you into a bookshop right now, what would be in your basket when you finally staggered to the till?

Hmmm… not too sure. I’d def look through the sales bin first though!

    Wow! What a great question this week. I always peek at other people's book piles at the checkout link at B&N.; That doesn't make me a voyeur, does it?The exhibitionist in me has posted my own bookstore shopping list — and it's not as predictable as you may think!Hop on over to my blog for all the suspense and chills of my TBR list – http://www.howardsherman.netHappy Hop Friday!Howard Sherman

    Small Review

    Oops, I thought I was a follower already. I guess I added you to my Google reader and forgot to GFC follow. Well, now I am :)I'm in the middle of a very long engagement too (years!). Also with no firm end in sight. It is what it is. What matters is you're happy, right? :)

    Newest follower here, via the Friday hop. I'm in education as well, a Reading Specialist in an elementary school. Love my holidays too. Although, my spring break isn't until April – soooo jealous of you right now. I'm a new contemporary romance writer but a reader of almost everything. Hope you stop by and check out my blog.
