But actually I don't mind because I am lucky enough to love my job - not only is the place cool, the people lovely but it's the dream job I always wanted.

It was either be an anthropologist or be a writer and work at a publishing house. Now I did get a degree in anthropology but I'm still chipping away at that doctorate so plan B works great for me.

I feel so blessed because so many times people hate their job, their coworkers or are unemployed. Meanwhile, I met Nicholas Sparks on Monday at the office and I attended Carmindy's (from What Not to Wear) book launch party that night and met her too. Lucky!!! I actually prefer being here to bored at home and since most of the time I'm online - my body is technically at the office (pun intended) but my mind and soul are off somewhere deep in cyberspace - I'm sure some of you are right beside me!

So anyway I thought I'd just post a little introductory note and share my thoughts. I'm really glad to be part of this community and share in the book blogger love.

It does sound like a dream job. I guess that's why everyone from Hachette is so nice!

Julie, I took the finance route too and started on my MBA then realized I hated crunching numbers and the corporate environment (at least the one I was in or the side of it I was on!) so I quit ... school and work :)

I'd LOVE to have a job like yours Valerie. Of course, living in the middle of nowhere in the Midwest and having to live wherever my husband's company chooses to plop us down makes anything like that basically impossible.

I hope when I become a mom - I'll have a chance to do that too at least while they're small. That's the most important and toughest job in the world.

You are very lucky! I took the finance/MBA route and now am a stay-at-home mother. I wouldn't trade my current job for anything (that's on most days), but I do regret not doing something real with books!
