Introduce Yourself #insixwords

The challenge is simple: introduce yourself on Twitter, Instagram, or at the host blog using six words, no more, no less. Use the hashtags #boutofbooks and #insixwords so we can learn all about you.

My starting line:

I’m starting the read-a-thon in the middle of three books. On audio I’m 16 minutes into Chapter 10 of Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan. On my Kindle, I’m at 15% in Weycombe by G. M. Malliet. On my nightstand I’m around chapter 4 probably of For the Love by Jen Hatmaker. The goal is to finish those first. I guess I’m also 5% into Beauty and the Goblin King by Lidiya Foxglove. This is why I need a read-a-thon.
