2 year anniversary of Book Nerd Alert Blog

I cannot believe that my blog is 2 years old! This blog started when I needed an emotional outlet from stress. I love to talk, read, and research books. So this blog was a natural fit for me!

I never really talk on here about myself. I live in a VERY small town. I grew up on a horse farm. I still have farm animals today, but not as many. I enjoy spending time with my pets, gardening/plants, hiking, camping, hanging out with my family, and crosswords. I enjoy watching TV and movies to unwind.

Being a reader has really changed who I am as a person. I have read books that really opened my eyes to another person’s perspective. I have also traveled the world and experienced different cultures. Reading can take you to magical places.

I want to thank everyone for reading my blog. It has been quite the stress relief for me. It is also fun to write about things that
