These are my confessions as an obsessive reader. Like so many other bloggers out there, I’ve got a reading habit that won’t die. I’ll read short stories, novels, non-fiction, poetry, how-to, new articles, horoscopes, nutrition labels…..really anything in English.
I’m here to expose my addition and to try and slow down. I tend to turn into an insatiable monster when I read. Once I’ve started a binge I don’t stop until I’ve exhausted my bookshelf and my library fines are in the double digits.
Look for book reviews and articles of interest. I don’t think I’ll be posting nutrition labels…..but who knows… trans fats are a hot topic here in New York.
I know so many people out their that read with the same kind of passion, and I’d like to create a space for discussions about what we read. If you’ve just finished reading something that totally blew your doors off, I want to know about it. I’m always on the look out for the next book to fall in love with. Similarly, if you’ve just finished something that was a total waist of space/time/money…..let’s hear about it.
I’ll also be posting about my life here in New York. This is not an easy place to live/work/be. I’ve been here a year and I can still get lost on the subway. I don’t travel above 14th because I’ll probably get lost. Look for posts about my adventures across this urban landscape.
PS: This blog is still in early infancy. I’ll be trying out different styles and themes. Let me know what you think is working and what isn’t.
