I am one of the lucky people who likes to go to work. Being surrounded by books and book people makes me happy. My reading diet leans toward literary fiction and I have a particular fondness for well developed characters and beautiful writing. I dip into non-fiction sometimes too. I'll read anything by Erik Larson and Candice Millard, and I have an appetite for biography and memoirs especially with a food theme. I also enjoy travel writing - even though I'm not going anywhere soon.
