1) Who are you and where are you?
My name is Lauren and I live in a suburb of Boston. (This is where I have to say I'm not FROM Boston, I moved here two years ago from NYC.)
2) What do you do for work?
I work in publishing... surprise!
3) What do you do for fun?
Going to the movies, keeping journals (for 3.5 years I wrote down the number every subway car I rode to track which car I rode the most often - D 2727. I also have kept a journal of all books I have read for the past 5 years).
4) Tell me something about your bookshelves.
This photo is only part of one of my bookshelves. This one is in my guest room and is filled with books I have read and organized by color. I also have a bookshelf of journals and bookshelf of books I haven't read yet, children's books, and absurd theater.
5) Tell me something about ONE of the books on your shelf.
I read The Bell Jar by Plath during an unexpected bout of unemployment after moving from the city I love to the boyfriend I love. I was accompanying him on a business trip in Lewiston, Maine, in the middle of the winter. This is the exact situation that I recommend NOT reading Plath.
