About the Author...

In recent years, I've been a dedicated Goodreads reviewer. Last week an author (whom I will not name) I greatly respect wrote something kind about my review of their book, and it inspired me to begin a book blog!

I didn't go to school for literature or English, so please bear with me. I may not have the vernacular down, but I hope to be able to lead you towards titles you'll enjoy or appreciate! My passion for reading knows no bounds!

My reading goals are quite ordinary, I think: read all novels awarded the Pulitzer and Man Booker, and during the year 2011 I hope to read at least one hundred books. So far, I've read twenty two. Here's hoping!

I suppose I should introduce myself! I read for pleasure and the broadening of my own mind; I don't read for fluff's sake very often. I like literature, both classic and modern. I enjoy the odd biography from time to time, although I admit even four years after graduating from university, I am a bit burnt out on nonfiction. I'm happily married, and an avid hiker and gardener! I read like it's my job. I set myself daily reading goals, aiming towards the annual book total. I buy books second hand and new no matter how many I all ready own that I haven't gotten to yet. I'm not an e-reader, but I'll keep my opinions on those little devices to myself; whatever keeps the masses reading is O.K. by me!

If there's a book you think I'd like, share. If you disagree, share that too! I love discussion; I've tried joining a book club previously but I wasn't overly impressed with the choice of books. Goodreads has served me well in that capacity!

I hope to post a review every Wednesday and Saturday, however long or short my blurb may be. Expect some guest posts once in a blue moon, too! Thanks for stopping by!
