I’m Officially ‘That Girl Who Reads Books’

Dog and Cat In Library
Snagged from:

I’ve decided to create this blog to hold myself liable for the books I have amassed. I am a sentimental person. I cry as often as I laugh, and I hold on to things, books in particular, because memories live within them—I don’t even have to read a book to attach a memory to it.

This blog is an attempt to utilize the books I own, set those memories free, and find a new home for my collection.

That Girl Who Reads Books is not a review of books, but I imagine it will sometimes seem that way. I do not plan to give any of these books negative commentary because 1.) I feel that books just have a hard enough time being books 2.) Someone out there spent a lot of time and energy on them either writing or publishing  3.) I’m not a professional book critic 4.) There’s enough negative energy out there, why add to it?

Not only will I be reading all of the books I own, but I will also be reading all of the books my husband owns, as well as children’s books I picked up for when my nieces visit.

I hope to post twice a week,  limiting myself to 700 words. But be warned: I am a rule breaker.

Post titles will be the ISBN number of the book I’ve been reading. Why? Because I’m a nerd who doesn’t like coming up with titles for blog posts. And, in my opinion, ISBN numbers don’t get enough press.

To my husband and nieces: I will not give away your books without your permission.

    looking forward to reading this blog regularly.

  3. “I feel that books just have a hard enough time being books…”

    Isn’t that the truth!
