About Me

Not a bad way to pass a sunny afternoon.

I love reading, and I do it a lot. I used to work in a bookstore and now I’m studying literature, both heavily book-related activities though in a lot of ways that’s where the similarities end. I live in a room full of books with too few shelves and not enough floor. I love writing, though I don’t do it quite as much as I should. I also love writing about what I’m reading, and that’s why I’m here. Apologies for being verbose, for taking myself and lots of other things too seriously, for the inevitable name-dropping, and for all the errors, grammatical or otherwise, that someone who uses words like “ineffable” has no excuse for making.

  1. Hey Margaret, glad to find out you have a blog! Have you read any Robert Harris? Would be interested to know what you think of his Fatherland, or Pompeii, or Conspirata…Parke’s friend, Sharon

  2. Hey Sharon! Lovely to “see” you here! I haven’t read any Robert Harris but I will add him to my list for my first library trip when I get back stateside. I wonder if my friend who is a Classics major has read him…sounds like something that might be right up her alley.

    Typical writer!
    Just sit down and write the thing. Get’r done. People want to know a bit more than “I went to college”. And at your young age and bloom, show us your mug, too.

    Love your love for reading – so dear. I don’t have the time to browse other blogs, but I found myself reading every entry on your homepage. Love the coffeehouse journal/sketchbook for the customers. I think that is part of the ArtHouse project, and I’m participating this year. I chose the topic: “A Day in A Life”.

    Good luck!


  4. Lavanna, thanks for stopping by! I’m glad you enjoy the blog and my crazy love for reading. And I promise to update the “About Me” and even add a photo (or at least a picture of me with my nose stuck in a book…perhaps literally). Soon! Really. If it’s not up by the end of August, send me a nasty message.

  5. I’ve kept up with your blog for a while. I enjoy the poetry you post. I have a small (tiny, really) proposition for you. Email me if interested, please.
