So I saw this over on Turn the Page Reviews and Pages Unbound and I just had to join in on the fun! This is for all of us who can’t make it to BookExpo America (BEA), but want to do something fun anywho. Today is for introductions!
1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Hello! I’m Steph and I’ve been blogging for about 3 months now. I started blogging because even though I work in a library sometimes it isn’t possible to share your real opinions about books with everyone nor is it possible to meet people with the same taste or enthusiasm in them. And now since I work in such a small town at such a tiny library, I work alone for the most part so there’s really no co-workers to discuss books with either. So I started blogging to connect with others who share the same love and joy and to be able to really share my true feelings about the books I read.
2. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
It’s my 24th birthday today! And I’m marrying a DJ even though I don’t dance : )
3. If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
Hmm…well I’ll be obvious and say J.K. Rowling. There is so much she could teach you! It would be incredible to spend time with her even if it was just dinner. I love her : )
4. What is your favorite part about the book blogging community?
I love connecting with people you would never meet or talk to otherwise. Plus you get to share your real opinions without feeling bad about it or getting judged for it. It’s so fun!
5. What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?
Well, this is kinda cheating because I’ve already visited it, but I would like to visit it again; The British Library. It is wonderful! I spent hours there looking around at some of the amazing treasures they had on display and could spend sooo much longer there! (Here are some of my notes from visiting: “We saw a bunch of original manuscripts and papers written by Lewis Carrol, Jane Austen, The Beatles, Sylvia Plath (pretty handwriting), (possibly) Shakespeare, Wordsworth (messy writing, which surprised me), Chalotte Bronte (elegant). We also saw the Magna Carta (not that cool), the Gutenberg Bible, tons of illuminated works, and some of Freud’s and DaVinci’s own handwritten notes.”) If you’re ever in London you NEED to visit the British Library.
So now you know a little more about me! Let me know if you’re participating too!
