Hi, welcome to Red Lips and Bibliomaniacs!

First of all, let me do a brief introduction of myself. I’m Nirmala; on the catastrophic path of approaching thirty in a few years. Originating from Pearl of the Indian Ocean (cutesy name for Sri Lanka), in another life I used to be an equity analyst, but now retired to become a full-time, devout homemaker in the charming city of Ann Arbor.

When I’m not busy homemaking (whatever it may entail!), you can find me in a corner curled up with a book. Like most of us mortals out there, I read for joy, and to kill time! However, I’m not a passionate or any kind of a library user (despite being a volunteer at the local district library). Instead, I’m a self diagnosed bibliomaniac!

So I plan on devoting this blog to primarily keep track of my reading escapades, yet with any luck I will also be writing stories of wanderlust – my mission is to become a globetrotter and right now I’m trying really hard to transmit the bug to my husband (who is the official photographer of the blog!) – and bit of baking. 😀

Thanks for dropping by and stay tuned for my new posts!

    Hello. So nice to meet you. Perhaps firstly because I too am a financial industry person (although still in the rat race), secondly because I also love red lipstick (am I assuming too much?) and thirdly because I really enjoy reading. Thank you for visiting my blog as it gave me a chance to meet you.

    1. It’s always nice to meet a financial industry person (even virtually!). And I do LOVE red lipstick! 😀 I really liked the way you had taken pics of your November TBR. Very artsy! 🙂 Looking forward to read your thoughts on them…
