The only thing missing from this picture is a stack of books…because truly a glass of wine and a good book, is there anything better?
I started blogging at WordPress a couple years ago under the header “Read ’em and Eat”. When I started I was trying to make a site that might be a useful resource for book club novices; a place to select a book, find some questions and even get a recipe or two. Sadly, I don’t have the time to do it properly and, truthfully, there are already sites that do it way better than I ever could.
In December 2009 I went to a panel discussion about reading and was introduced to the term ‘ludic reader’. Turns out, that’s just what I am: I read for pleasure. I decided then and there that I wanted to rethink/redesign my blog and really focus in on what I most enjoy: chatting about the books. So, this is my attempt at a book blog version 2.
My name is Christie. I live in Canada with my family. I teach high school English, but have had (it seems) a hundred other jobs. I love to travel. I love to cook. And I love to read.
I’d love to get to know you.
Updated May 27, 2016 to add: My new header was handpainted by my talented friend (and member of my book club!), Marianne. She does sell her work. Shoot me a note if you’re interested.
