My name is Robyn, and I am a book addict.
Anything. Everything. Fiction, nonfiction, poetry, prose, classics, contemporary. I do have a weakness for depressing Russian lit, epic Norse epics, and anything with a wizard/dragon/sword-with-a-name. Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of YA lit. (Read YA. It’s hella good, bruv, BELIEVE IT!)
I am currently an unemployed librarian. (Sad face – and question: is a librarian really a librarian if no one is paying her to push books on unsuspecting people?) So my dreams of pretending to see ghosts lurking in the stacks, reading from ancient Egyptian texts to accidentally-on-purpose resurrect hot angry mummies on a mission, and shushing everyone are on hold – for now (dum dum DUM).
UPDATE 12/29/30 – I AM A LIBRARIAN! I HAVE BEEN LIBRARIANING FOR THE PAST 4 MONTHS! ALL IS WELL AND GOOD WITH THE WORLD!
This blog was originally created for a Young Adult Materials course, part of the Master of Library and Information Studies at the University of Western Ontario (in, sadly, fake London, a.k.a. London, Ontario. No comment). That course has ended, but I came to love my blog far too dearly to abandon it. Since I have nothing else better to do, I’m continuing on with this blogging mission…quest….thing. The deal: I blog about books and book-related stuff, and reviewing and musing on what I’ve read, am reading, and plan to read – same old, except the books aren’t exclusively YA, as they were when this was a school-related blog. And, goody goody, there is significantly less self-censorship. Which means more nerdiness, more weirdness, and more Book Cat. And more of whatever the hell I want. Boo-yah!
P.S. The blog’s name is a tribute to the place that was the spark for this whole endeavour: the great British Library, located at 96 Euston Road, London, UK.
Now let’s watch my librarian role model do her thing.
