It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a bookworm in possession
of a good number of books must be in want of
…more bookish merch
…more bookstores to visit
…more pretty editions of books already owned
I started this blog to help fellow bookworms find all the things mentioned above, so if you agree with those statements this is the right place for you!
At this Blog Of my Own, I will write about the books I read, books that are currently popular and those that are about to become popular, pretty editions of books I own or would like to own, amazing bookstores worth a visit, bookish merch I add to my wishlist and anything else concerning books.
I’ve loved books as long as I can remember.
When I was little I left the light on much longer than I was allowed to so I could read more (I was a real rebel) and quickly pretended to be asleep when my parents came to check on me.
When I was about 12 I was going through so many books that my mother decided it would be a good idea to sign up for a library card – oh boy, did I love going to the library! It’s not an exaggeration when I say I usually left there with about 10 books and read them all before coming back two weeks later.
By now I’m in my twenties and studying languages and literature at university. English literature classes in particular are my favorite. When getting up for school in the morning is fun, you know you’re doing something right!
Seeing as I’m studying literature at university, this is also a continuous learning opportunity for me. Blogging about books and literature will serve to help me improve my writing and pay closer attention to what I’m reading. Not to mention that exploring the book blogging community will surely also broaden my horizon as a reader.
Languages are my second love – so far I know 4 languages and I will be learning a fifth starting next semester -so I might also feature some foreign language editions and books from the respective countries here.
Have fun exploring my bookish world!
