Hi, I’m Elena. I’m a writer and editor and have a blog. (And here you are! Reading it! I’m not sure why, but…cool!) I read books obsessively, especially since finishing college and being able to read any books I want. It’s glorious. When I read something really great that begs to be shared…well, some part of me feels sorry for the wide-eyed people who were unlucky enough to be standing there, breathing the air and minding their own business… Hence, the blog. Thanks for reading and breathing! Way to be you!
Honestly, I most of all like hearing what other people are thinking. Feel free to share. The comments section isn’t nearly as scary as I used to think it was, so…take a risk! It’s a pretty lonely internet without a little back-and-forth dialogue.
On the topic of books…
My favorite things to read tend to be children’s and Young Adult fiction. Some of my favorite YA books are nearly a hundred years old; some are newer. There are some really awesome, little-known YA books out there. I keep mentioning some of my favorites in hopes that someday, somewhere, somebody will actually take my suggestions and read Megan Whalen Turner. Cough. (There’s other writers too, I suppose.) And of course I’m always looking for new books as long as they’re not textbooks. Notice how there aren’t many textbook bloggers. (“Boy, I just loved the evocative detail of chapter four, Analyzing Your Financial Statement“…actually I was a part of a blog like that once…)
Anyway, join in anytime. We’d love to have you. Happy reading!
