Audiobooks count as reading. Graphic novels count as reading.

What I do when I'm not at the library: I'm a fast reader and a slow runner. I'm an avid crafter, especially when it comes to cross-stitch and stained glass. I also enjoy watching hockey, bullet journaling, long naps and making lists.

Something unique about me: When I was in college, I worked on an archaeological dig in Germany.

The last thing that I read: The Witches are Coming by Lindy West (which I highly recommend on audio!)

What I'm reading now: The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys
