Hello! 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 explained to my coworker at the library that I’m putting this bit here so I can justify what gives me the right to talk about books and he said: “reading gives you the right to talk about books, no need to get all fancy.”
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:
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
