Hi, I’m Jenna and I’m a book-a-holic. I blame this condition on my parents, who, from a very early age, encouraged me to read like a fiend. I listened like any good little girl would.
The name of my blog was inspired by a passage from the novel, Glaciers, by Alexis M. Smith:
“She remembers sitting in an armchair with Agnes reading the nature encyclopedia, screaming over and over again, first with fright, then glee, when they turned to the magnified pictures of spiders. Her sister read that spiders have book lungs, which fold in and out over themselves like pages. This pleased Isabel immensely. When she learned later that humans do not also have book lungs, she was disappointed. Book lungs. It made complete sense to her. This way breath, this way life: through here.”
Much like my taste in music, my taste in books is very eclectic – I try to enjoy a little bit of everything. In the past few years, though, I’ve really gotten more interested in mystery books and young adult fiction. (Don’t judge!)
I make it a habit to spot what books people are reading while taking public transportation or while sitting in a restaurant having a meal, and I routinely pass out recommendations at visits to my doctor’s office.
