Current book: Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff
Today will only serve to be an introduction, since I am new to the blogging world and I am a bit short of time! To me, this blog will serve as an outlet for my desires to write and make sense of life; while I do keep my own private journal, I also love the idea of sharing our lives with each other through blogs. I was inspired to do this after reading the blog Enjoying the Small Things because while I am not a photographer, I can see how blogging will inspire me to pick up my pen (figuratively) a little more frequently, celebrating the simple but amazing life I lead.

While I may never have any readers or feedback, my other goal for this blog is to discuss books. I am a library clerk and genealogist at a local library and I am inspired when talking to patrons young and old about their favorite or least favorite books. It makes me marvel how everyone's tastes differs when it comes to literature, as well as how the same books or passages can strike different chords in people. In addition, I love discussing what I am passionate about and what (or who) inspires me... so you may find blogs about Jo March, my genealogy research, hot cocoa, or daisies in here too. To me, this blog will function as a worldwide book club: a place for me to swoon and gush and groan over the various books that come my way and listen to your own insights about books and the wider world. I look forward to any comments or suggestions... I also love getting new ideas for what to add to my book list!
Next chapter: A Discourse Upon My Bookshelves a.k.a. the type of books I read.
