“If you are an overeducated (or at least a semi-overeducated) youngish person with a sleep disorder and a surfeit of opinions, the thing to do, after all, is to start a blog.” – A.O. Scott
I’m going to start off my literary career here with some good plagiarism [from babygotbooks]. My English professors would be so proud.
Not that there aren’t enough blogs out there, especially literary blogs–I’m just going to continue in my own self-promotion [I’m in the middle of applying for a new job, and it’s a little bit habit-forming]. I read voraciously, addictively; hence the junkie. I read a little bit of everything: general fiction, crime novels, historical novels, sci-fi, fantasy, YA, general nonfiction (a la brevity), history, biography, mystery. Everything but chick lit. Some of what I read is very mainstream; some isn’t. You can check out my to-read list (and make suggestions!) at goodreads.
I hope you (whoever the so-far-nonexistent “yous” may be) enjoy.
