An avid book worm, web designer, dog lover, and all-around nerd. I design web sites for a living and currently work as a freelancer. Read on about how my love of reading started this book blog.

A Passion for Books Starts at a Young Age..

I love reading books. I have always had a passion for reading ever since I learned. My dream profession in Kindergarten was to be a Librarian (true story!). My childhood reads included anything and everything by Robert MunschAmelia BedaliaThe Berenstein BearsThe Babysitter’s Club. Then grew to Sweet Valley HighR.L. Stine and then the explosion of Chick Lit happened, so I started reading the Shopaholic series and ended up reading a lot of Jane Green‘s novels.

Teen books become an instant love

High school came, and I was more interested in web design. My co-op placement hired me and I worked as a web designer for the publishing company that publishes Canadian magazines such as Toronto LifeWEDDINGBELLSFASHION Magazineand at the time, FASHION18. The job was a long commute downtown so I almost always brought a book. I picked up the ever popular series Harry Potter from my sister, and from The Philosopher’s Stone I was hooked. J.K. Rowling is a genius. My reading passion was ignited once again. I read classic novels, and best-sellers, but it wasn’t until I went back to college where I discovered a book called Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. It was virtually unknown at the time and I borrowed it from my best friend Anna. I read it and loved it! Vegetarian vampires with a romance to die for? Count me in!
This was the moment I realized that the publishing world was going to turn (again). Twilight was optioned to be a movie, and after that everyone read it and it brought reading back on the map once again. I have to thank Stephenie Meyer for doing what she did. She made reading cool again.

So what does she carry her books in?

I know this is a bad habit to most book lovers and I try not to do it. But if I do need a book when I’m commuting to work, or just need a break wherever I may be, I just place the book in my bag. When this happens, I notice a ton of dents and bumps that happen to the book. So I try not to bring paperback books anymore. I switched it out with hardcover books. (Though that tends to get heavy in my bag, but it’s worth it!)  I now realized that maybe I can bring paperbacks, so I have used my ipad cover case (which I got  from the dollar store) to house my book in my bag. Voila! No dents or bumps, it’s still in perfect condition.
