I am a college graduate currently working as a freelance copyeditor. I hope to work in publishing full time. In Bed With Books is now a little over four years old, although I blogged elsewhere before beginning IBWB. I also write reviews for TGTBTU. I started on the path to book blogging in ninth grade, when my school librarian introduced me to the world of ARCs and pre-publication reviews. That was more than four years, however, before I began a blog dedicated to my book reviews.

I am currently reading MY LIFE IN BLACK & WHITE by Natasha Friend. I've read a lot of good books lately, so it's hard to pick a favorite. SMART GIRLS GET WHAT THEY WANT by Sarah Strohmeyer and FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS by Diana Peterfreund are at the top of the heap. But I still have a number of books to read that look absolutely amazing!
3. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
I love to laugh. People can tell when I laugh, for it is a unique laugh. My laughter once brought a performance by the Royal Shakespeare Company to a brief standstill because the entire theater laughed with me. (As You Like It, 2009 - If you were there, you know who I am.) My friends often reassure me that my laugh isn't annoying, but I'm not entirely convinced. My niece may have inherited it.

I don't have one perfect post to point you to, but I'm rather fond of my review of DANGEROUS NEIGHBORS by Beth Kephart.
7. If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
I'm going to assume this means alive or dead. The answer is Nathaniel Hawthorne, so that I can proposition him. I have a thing for his symbolism. (I was in high school; I've never quite gotten over it.)
