Who Am I?
I'm Carol. I also go by Carol Ann. I started Novel Gobblers Book Club and blog in 2013 because I wanted to experience my love of books more fully and what better way to do that than through enthusiastic discussions with other book lovers. Having earned my undergraduate degree after 8 years of part-time college, I was eager to read for simple pleasure again. Plus, my youngest of three children was leaving home to pursue her own college education. It was time to place more focus on developing my own interests and talents such as books, violin, and my second career as a GIS Specialist.
Where am I From?
I'm a proud native to southeastern Idaho where as a child I actively spent my days outside in the fresh air with my dog and horse or playing sports with my friends. As an adult, I still love playing outside, whether it's taking in spectacular mountain scenery or walks in beautiful parks along the Snake River or gardening in my own yard. Of course, book stores and coffee shops are among my favorite haunts, too.
Early on, the blog was a way to keep track of all the books our group read and to post club business. It has since grown to include light book guides, activities, tips, recipes, and other interesting discoveries. I hope you find it useful, fun and inspiring. Your participation is welcomed so please, freely contribute your comments to help spread the love.
