My name is Carrie Slager and I am a young woman living in rural Saskatchewan. My location spurred me to write this blog in part because I only live in a town of 300-ish people, practically none of whom like to talk about books. Starting a blog was a thing I did on a whim after work one day and although I didn’t know it at the time, my little hobby for one winter turned into this three year project and I’m not planning to quit anytime soon.
My hobbies include studying ancient cultures (Egypt, Rome and Persia currently), reading, occasionally writing and of course blogging.
Here are some random/sort of interesting facts about me:
- I received my PADI scuba diving certification at the age of 13, despite a severe sinus infection that made diving excruciatingly painful. The tank, weights and BCD probably added up to more than half my body weight at the time.
- On an average Saturday evening, there is an 80% chance you would find me watching an opera or reading.
- I have climbed 3 different Mayan pyramids in 2 different countries.
- Over the past 5 years, I’ve kept track of how many books I’ve read and I average about 200 books per year.
Obviously, this list is not nearly as awesome as most peoples’.
