CJ

Representative -Philippine

I am a lifelong lover of books and reading. I spent half my adult life working in a bookstore and loving every minute of it. I have two Sphynx cats, one rescue cat and a hooman son that I all adore equally. I recently got adopted by another cat. Apparently, I had no say in the matter. My journey to the world of technology and online started two years ago. It is an interesting, fast, and mind-boggling place that I always get lost or stuck when net stops working.
