I have a confession to make: my name isn't really Jane Doe. I'm sure you're probably thinking "yeah, no kidding" right about now. But, truthfully, it may as well be. According to howmanyofme.com, there are currently 10,575 people living in the United States named Jennifer Johnson, and a Google search of my name yields 349 million results. It's easy to feel lost in that sea.

As a teenager, I hated my incredibly common name because I thought it meant that I was boring or average. With time, I learned that I might have an average name, but I'm NOT your average girl. So I created Life as a Jane Doe back in 2009 to share my personal thoughts, and interests, and everyday life with the rest of the world.

Today, this blog is centered primarily around my love of reading. I read a lot (on average, 200 books a year), and I love to share my thoughts on what I've read with any and every one who will listen. If I'm able to lead other book lovers to discover new and interesting reads, even better.
