My name is Tessa and I like to read books. (Hi, Tessa!)
I also like to talk about books.
I also like to look at pretty pictures of books on Instagram.
I have a TBR bookcase that is a hopeless case, as I buy more books than I could ever hope to realistically read. It’s an unsustainable hobby, but I don’t think I’m solo in this boat.
WELP- I decided to start a blog! It will mostly be about books, but sometimes I might want to talk about other stuff!
Ground rules I have set for myself and this blog:
- Read books! Read book club books. Read other books. Read all of the books or none of the books. There is no pressure.
- Write about the books you read! Posts can be reviews after I’ve finished a book or thoughts while I’m reading a book. Anything goes!
- Write about other things! I might just want to tell a funny story, or vent, or share a recipe. AGAIN. Anything. Goes.
- Be honest.
- Keep it fun. This is a hobby!
So, here I go. I am excited about this new adventure, and I am excited to join a very fun and exciting community of book lovers.
I leave you all with this:
Long before I created a small human of my very own, I was a collector of books for small humans. There is an extremely real possibility that I had a child to justify (slash make less creepy) the fact that I had such a large collection of kid’s books. I should probably consult a professional on this, but some stones are better left unturned.
Turns out what ACTUALLY happened is that I used my offspring as an excuse to acquire MORE kid’s books. (Where is that professional…..???)
Anyway- to my immense relief, the tot loves books. We read four (minimum) every night.
I’m raising a reader, and couldn’t be happier!
