I live just outside of the great city of New Orleans, Louisiana. I absolutely love living so close to such a diverse cultural base. There is nothing better than spending the weekend downtown in the restaurants and seeing a play, concert, or just watching people in the quarter.
I am in graduate school to get my PhD in Secondary Math Curriculum & Instruction. I coach a high school math team and teach upper level high school/college math courses. Hence the title of my blog. It is originally a quote from a personal hero Archimedes, "Do not disturb my circles." Circles were serious business. I have a similar attitude with my reading. I don't like my reading to be interrupted and I will always find time to read. Most people have no idea that I am constantly reading since I am usually preoccupied with math in my professional world. However, reading is a great hobby of mine and I have always loved reading especially the paranormal and fantasy genre.
Thus, I decided I might as well do something with everything that I read. I have really begun to enjoy blogging and getting to talk to many great authors.

Hi Brandi, I like your blog. It looks great! I'm a teacher as well. I teach high school theater and dance. Maybe this passion for reading is a teacher thing (lord knows we had to read enough in college, lol!). Anyway, I wanted to pop in and say hello. The teachers have to stick together, right? I sent you a friend request too.
