The Name Says It All

I recently decided it would be fun to blog. I love writing so why not? I'm really hoping it will help with said love of writing. You know, keep the fingers and thoughts in motion.

Anyway, this blog will basically be me sharing my thoughts as I make my way through an ever-growing stack of books. This pile resembles a spring because I am incapable of controlling myself when I walk passed a bookstore. Scratch that. I usually have to be dragged away from a bookstore. To be completely honest, I believe that it would be physically impossible for me to leave a bookstore without buying at least one book. Hence we have the lovely mountain of books I affectionately call Mt. Ton-of-Books. To get some concept of just how bad my obsession with books is think of the film\book Inkheart. You know the character Elinor? The character played by Helen Mirren in the movie. Yes, well, her house is just a preview of my house 20 to 30 years from now. For those of you who have not read the book or seen the movie, think of a house in which every room’s wallpaper is actually bookshelves filled with books and I mean EVERY room. That is my dream house.

Okay so enough talk about my dream house. Beyond just discussing these books, I’ll probably make suggestions of good books that I’ve already read. This will be at least once a week. Maybe more. Who knows? I’m really just playing this by ear. Also, if anyone out there has any suggestions at all, I’m completely open. Well, open to tasteful suggestions. Nothing perverted please. But frankly I do love when people suggest new books because they usually suggest books that I would never have picked up to begin with and I usually find these books quite interesting. So bring on the suggestions folks!

All right, finally I’ll probably discuss the many joys of being a college student because we all know that there are oh so many: tests, quizzes, finals, lectures, running late, staying up late to study, etc. While this may not appear to be very amazing to some of you, I promise that I’ve had some very hysterical experiences thus far and knowing me those are only the tip of the iceberg for what is to come. I must inform whoever might be reading this that I lean toward being rather melodramatic, (Of course, you’ve probably noticed that by now.) and I “enjoy” doing things the hard way. So apparently when these two traits are combined it leads to very funny stories or so I’m told, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

But for now that’s it for the first post. Hope you return for the second! Until then, happy readings!
