My aim for this blog is express my thoughts and feelings on books and reading. That may take the form of a review for a book that I have read or it may just be a general view on reading or how I feel about particular issues regarding reading and books or what I have gained from reading. Reviews will probably take up most of this blog, but knowing me, that might be wishful thinking. I am in the process of making my reviews more engaging, but for some reason writing isn't my strong suit and can't seem to express what I truly feel about a book after reading a book.
I feel that a book can take you anywhere you wish to go and explore things that you would like to or just wished you had. It also opens one's mind to new ideas and ways of interpreting the world that one may have not seen.
I currently live about an hour outside of Vancouver, BC and about a two and a half hour drive north of Seattle, Washington. And while I sometimes gripe about not being near a big bookstore, I am situated near a library that is a part of a large regional library system, which allows me to read most of what I wish to read. And if I can't find it there, I just drive myself to Surrey and get a book from their system.
While I love reading books, I also love history. I honestly don't know where it came from, but I managed to parlay it in a Bachelor's Degree, of which I am proud of. I also have a 2-year diploma in Library Information and Technology, which allows me to work as a Library Technician.
I also have Asperger's Syndrome, which is an Autism Spectrum Disorder, which may be partly to explain as to why I am able to keep track of so many books at one time.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog and take the time to comment.
The name of the blog comes from my middle name, which is Jayne (and yes it is spelled that way). I don't know why I choose it, but probably because I was in a mood of using my middle name in my screen names and probably it just came logically to me.
