Here I am…

So, a blog.

Last night, in my retrospection of the last two weeks, I started crying to my dear boyfriend about how I feel useless. I don’t know who I am without work to do, and in this current job search, I have had only a couple of serious bites. (Wish me luck!) Thankfully, this idea I’ve had over the past few months finally popped out of my mouth, and here I am, blogging about it.

Ideally, I want to be able to write about books as I travel through them. I have been known to hold tightly to my emotions while I read. I get angry, cry, laugh, mourn and celebrate with the friends I’ve made. However, I realize a blog filled with spoilers may not do so well. And writing after I’ve finished a books seems like less of a journey. Does anyone have any suggestions? What would be helpful to you?

Lastly, I would like to say that I have been lucky to make friends with people because of books and reading. I have found a richness in my life through reading and talking about it with friends. There is a joy in sitting over a coffee, laughing about common feelings, and disagreeing about others. I want this space to become my world book club. I hope you’ll join me.

Next post will be about The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. I have many things to say.
