The About Bit

12190867_10153425392068183_6668205888387080056_nI felt a new About Bit was probably in order now that I seem to have shipwrecked myself on the rocky shores of the blogging community for good. Starting out, as I did back in the day as primarily a book blog now, I tend to write whatever wild winds of whimsy lead me too.

Everyone calls me Ste J, I am an obsessive book creature, in fact I spend more time between the (book) covers (I read in bed as well though) than I do with ‘real’ people. Which means I probably spend more time with you guys than anyone else. Feel privileged.

I have an urge to read as much as I can, in any genre and give my forthright and sometimes slightly obscure opinions on books and whatever other thing takes my fancy, such as life, or gnomes, although I haven’t done a gnome post yet…

Here you will find provided, an eclectic mix of stuff for your reading pleasure, when it comes to books, I intentionally do not reveal much plot, if you fancy reading it, you don’t want me coming along and telling you the butler did it or such like. Not that I’m saying he did do it, but he could have.

As a public service I also read the rubbish books so you don’t have too, as well as delighting in finding the obscure to amuse you. I am also looking to review more authors who are self publishing and attempting to vary the content more and grow this into something interesting. Feel free to look around and make yourself at home, there’s tea in the pot.

Recently I have taken to adding more posts on things not found in a book (or those infernal e-readers), so although I am primarily a bookist, I wish to keep it varied and hopefully bring you a more different and whimsical variety of posts.  Enjoy….

    Hi, I happened to stumble upon your blog while scouting for fellow book lovers, and it was delightful to land here. I like the openness and friendly feel of your ‘About bit’ and I’ll go through some of your book reviews soon too. Also, Instagram has a great book community and you should totally check it out if you’re not there by now. I’ve found it very inspiring to engage in bookish talks and to geek out with strangers over discussions of hardcovers and bookmarks. Anyway, nice stopping by here. I’ll be in touch. Good day!

      Welcome to the blog, always happy to make acquaintance with a fellow book addict. I have dabbled with Instagram but have little time with keeping up with all the WordPress people and posts, I will try and make time to get involved with more people. Have a good day and may it be very bookish!

    Sir, have you read much John Updike, and did you like it – maybe, if not, would you consider this author?
