Sorry I’ve been lazy, guys.  I feel like I have a million ideas and thoughts in my head and now I’ve gone and done joined Pinterest, so I’m even more scatterbrained.  But I’ll be “pinning” a variety of crafts I’ve done, not just bookish ones.  We’ll see how I get acclimated to yet another forum.

Things to look forward to:

  •  Giveaway winner for the Shakespeare magnet announced on Sunday (contest ends midnight Friday)
  • Giveaway for Vaddey Ratner’s In the Shadow of the Banyan will be posted as soon as I receive the extra copy.
  • Review of The Aleppo Codex hopefully tomorrow (really digging it!)

And I have a few TLC books I need to prioritize, plus I feel like I should really read The Queen’s Vow sooner than later based on other bloggers positive opinions.

That’s all for now…

I live in a Chicago suburb with my husband and a house full of books. Book collecting, reading, and reviewing consume my life. I have a special affinity for all things Alice in Wonderland. I began my education at Carthage College, wanting to be an English teacher. Eventually I decided that Carthage and I weren’t a good fit anymore, so I transferred to North Park University, where I realized I didn’t want to be a teacher. So I finished my education with a degree in English with a writing concentration. I was always a voracious reader and wrote my first review in April 2007. I don’t remember why exactly I decided to write a review, only that I had just finished The Agony and the Ecstasy and had a strong feeling that I needed to express how I felt about it. This inspired me to write reviews about each book I wrote and after posting on Amazon for two years, I was invited into the Amazon Vine program. I am also an active reviewer/member of Goodreads and enjoy being an active member of the online book community.
