Oh hi! Fancy meeting you here!
I’ll try to keep this intro short and sweet. Anyone who has meet me for more than five minutes knows I have a passion for books. It’s annoying really, it’s all I talk about. Instead of only talking about it, figured I could try writing about my love of anything literature.
Why is the magnificent, marvelous world of books so important you might ask me?
Firstly, it’s a great escape. Life can be a scary shitstorm most days and cracking open a book and traveling to that universe can provide a quiet solitude and retreat away from it all. It brings a whole lotta comfort to be able to visit a new world just by reading some words off a page.
Secondly, it’s a good source of learning, not only facts and figures and new vocabulary. It’s also a chance to learn about someone else’s experience, someone different than you. It opens your view of the world and the people in it. Get to understand what others are going through and live it with them through their story.
Thirdly, it’s a way of connecting with other humans. The book community has allowed me to meet so many interesting people from all over the globe. It’s great to connect over a favorite book and to see it through their eyes.
A little about me? I’m a book addict living in Montreal, Canada. Currently working a full-time job and also going to school full-time so sleep be damned! Why not start another time-consuming project?
My idea for this little blog is to combine my love of reading and my love of writing. Things you can maybe expect from this page are writing prompts, little exercises to help practice some skills for your craft, focus posts that might deal with book recommendations or suggestions, some reviews and other little ideas I have in mind for this project.
