About

cutmypicHello! My name is Andreea. I created this online reading journal to catalog my reading experience. This blog holds me accountable for my opinions on a book which motivates me to read carefully. I also use this platform to review incoming books.

A little bit about me: I am a librarian. I completed a B.A. at the University of Toronto specialising in English Literature and Book and Media Studies, and have an MI from the same university in Library Science and Book History and Print Culture. I currently work at an academic library in a post-graduate college focused on Naturopathy.

I raid bookstores everywhere I go, and I love recommending books to people (it gets out of hand sometimes). I’m particularly fond of creating personalized reading lists, something that once used to be called “Readers’ Advisory” which I will dedicate an entire page to (maybe list it as “recommendations”). If you want to send me an email with all the books you’ve enjoyed, I would love to send you a list of recommendations. If there are topics you’d like me to cover, or resources to build, I will be very happy to help.  Just contact me in the comment section or send me an email.

Places you can find me:

Email: infinitetextlibrarian@gmail.com

Instagram : The place I post pretty book pictures

Goodreads : My Bookish Social Network

LibraryThing: Where I catalog my personal collection

Audible: List of the audiobooks I have (with some reviews)

*The title of this blog is inspired by David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest — He is an author I’ve admired and his essays are extraordinary, but the length, (including footnotes, and endnotes) of Infinite Jest  has always made me want to call it ‘infinite text’ in conversation

  1. I noticed in my browsing that you have a whole group dedicated to reading Robyn Hobb’s books. I forced myself to read 2 or 3 of them. Although fascinating on one level, I found them really hard work. So I gave up.

    1. Thank you for your lovely comments. The Hobb-a-along group was started by someone else, but you can always participate as it is linked through goodreads. I find that a reading schedule and some thought provoking questions created by zealous fans really help with motivation, because when I saw how long the series was, I felt the same way as you. Also you are very welcome, your title got my attention right away “creating magic with words!”
