Hopping on the Bandwagon...

I have been reading for as long as I can remember. It is something that has always been there, it's what I do.  I can't go to bed without having read at least a page, but my day is a pretty good one when I've been able to curl up for hours reading!  Working with books off and on for the past 4 years has increased my speed, passion, and knowledge of books. Being given an opportunity to review books for a well-known Canadian publisher for a year was an amazing adventure and something I will treasure for the rest of my life.

For The Love of Reading was created so I can continue to review books.  I am not looking to spoil the end or give anything away, but to give you my opinion of what I have read in the hopes that maybe you will want to read it too.  I plan on reviewing a wide array of books as I am open to reading anything once!  Please do not hesitate to recommend anything to me!

I would like to thank a few people before I end my first post. To my mom, thank you for instilling a love of reading in me.  Without your love and passion for books, I may not have developed my own. To Joe, for responding to a handwritten letter, in which I went on and on about how much I loved books and how I had always wanted to work in a bookstore. To Aidan, for hiring me twice. To James, for sharing my love and passion for kids books. A lot of my knowledge was gained in the time we worked together and I have always valued your opinion. To Michelle, for getting giddy and excited with me about books that we were reading or that we were waiting to be released. To Jennifer, for a fabulous year of reading and reviewing, and for finding a fellow book lover.  And finally to Aditya, for believing I can do anything.
