This blog has been a couple years in the making. I’ve just recently left my job in the publishing industry, with many mixed feelings, which I’ve realized is due to the fact that I love books, and I love working with books, but it was time to move on to something new. So with this in mind I felt a book blog was the best way to keep working with the people and things I love, on my own time with my own intentions and my own voice. And although this sounds silly and slightly narcissistic, I feel that my compunction to devour books can be a useful thing for others because I can save people from reading terrible books that don’t deserve their time and effort.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you find some good book recommendations. I read a wide range of books, due to many different factors (my work in the publishing industry has introduced me to A LOT of good and varied writers, I have a wide range of personal tastes, I read fiction to not only entertain but educate me, etc) so I’m hoping people will use this blog as not just a time waster while at work, but a resource for finding their next good read. I should also warn you, I’m a great lover of cats, my own in particular, so I’ll apologize in advance for posting random pictures of felines every so often, such as the one below.
So-take some time to browse the site, and I promise to not abandon this project for weeks at a time. I aim to make this blog reliable and consistent, and my goal is to post a couple times a week; this is my promise to you, fellow readers and supporters of ivereadthis.
We’ve had this discussion offline before, Anne, but you seriously (SERIOUSLY!) need to be on Twitter! How else will you save the many Tweeps out there “from reading terrible books that don’t deserve their time and effort.” I love that line by the way!
