Hello from the Catskills!

Post by rockygirl » Sat August 14th, 2010, 1:40 am

Hi!
I've been having fun and learning so much reading this site that I had to join. I'm really impressed by the quality of the discussions and the vast quantity of knowledge everyone seems to have.

I am a social studies teacher who lives in the Catskills Mountains of upstate NY. I read a bit of everything, but prefer mysteries and historical fiction. As you can imagine, I get really excited over the historical mysteries. My favorite subjects are Ancient Rome and Europe from the Victorian period to the World Wars.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone. You're already expanding my reading list!

Rockygirl
