Hi, it’s me…yeah I know it’s been a while…
I was tagged to do a blog post by Aoife over at Pretty Purple Polka Dots to do a reading-related Q&A about two months ago. She even asked me before she tagged me because my blog had been left so abandoned and I said, yes I really need to get back to blogging, do tag me, I’ll do it. Well here I am, but not as soon as I probably should have.
OK so the first step to solving any problem is recognising you have one. My name is Jenny and I’m a Bibliophile, or book-aholic. I’ve always had a fondness for books and reading. My granny always impressed upon me the importance of reading, anything and everything, just always read. I always did read when I was younger. Harry Potter was of course, a shelf staple, and I read most of the Jacqueline Wilson books. But then when I got older and actually had to start studying for that Leaving Cert. thing, I ran out of time for books. I also developed a fondness for computer games and I went out socialising a lot more so I had even less time on my hands and my free time was taken up with other activities. In previous New Year’s posts from 2012 and 2013, you will see a failed attempt at forcing myself back into reading, and a successful one respectively. I didn’t read one book a month in 2013, but I ended up reading 16 books in the last five months of the year. I was back in all my bibliophilic glory.
