Love-A-Thon 2015 Intro Post

/ posted in: Just for Fun

The Book Bloggers Love-A-Thon is designed to be 2 days of spreading positive vibes around the web.  Check it out at Alexa’s blog.

My name is Heather and I’m in Ohio.  I’ve been blogging here since 2005.

Mostly I blog about books but I also write about fitness, quilting, and anything else that I feel the need to rant about.

When I’m not blogging I like to:

Travel

We went to France and Monaco in October and I’m going to England in May.  I also went to Orlando in January for a conference and snuck in some Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Universal time.

Quilt

I’m the state coordinator for Quilts of Valor, a group that gives quilts to veterans.

Play in the woods with horses

I’m a vet judge for competitive trail rides.

Mostly I read:
