I chose this title for my blog as books have been a constant throughout my whole life. Every happy time, every sad time in my life has a memory of a book attached to it. I know, for example, what book I was reading the day I got married, and I know what I was reading the day my mum died. Books are memorable to me for many reasons. Obviously some are memorable because they are amazing books in their own right and I remember them for that reason. Other books may have been quite average but are held high in my memory because they have a strong life memory attached. The point is that for me books are entwined throughout everything that makes up who I am. And there have been times in my life where, if it weren’t for the right book appearing in front of me at the moment it did, I’m not sure how I would have made it through.
Books are just magical for me. They allow me to escape, they allow me to travel to different times and places and realms. They make me laugh, they make me cry. They help me discover new things about myself, and about the world we live in.
So, my aim for this blog is to share my love of books. To share books that have saved me. To share books that are just wonderful. I may write some reviews of books I’ve recently finished. I may share some books with life memories attached. I’m also prone to writing lists of what I’ve read over the month or year, and although I always find it near impossible to narrow down, I do love a good end of year top ten, or twenty.
Anyway, it’s my blog about books. I hope you’ll enjoy reading what I share.
