Rachel's Introduction

Hi everyone! I'm Rachel, and I'm a book-a-holic. *please cheerfully chorus "hello Rachel!"*

I am a biomedical scientist and I live in Columbus, OH. I  have two cats. The rest, you can find out in the about me section of my blog. 

I decided recently to start reading the Orange Prize winners and nominees, and have been enjoying myself quite a bit. I'm glad I found this group so I can share my blog posts! Here's a list of what I've read so far.
