  1. I've been blogging for ... oh gosh, I started my first blog in October 2003.  It was a personal blog, mostly meant to share with my friends & family (and fellow knitters).  I kept that up pretty regularly until about 2008, when I went through some pretty crappy relationship stuff, was super depressed, and wanted to keep things more to myself.  For a few years after that I kept trying to revive the blog, but couldn't stick to it.  Luckily, after Amber & I went to BEA last year, we decided to start up our own BOOK BLOG!  And of course, it was perfect for us, and we're obsessed. :)

    Oh, and I blog from Connecticut, USA.
  2. "Book reviews for book lovers."  That's our official tagline, I do believe.

  3. (Actually, this is #5.)
    My book-related Pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/starianna/library-love-book-geek/

    And I can read ANYWHERE, believe me, but the above (not sure why I can't paste it down here!) has always made me feel so cozy - love autumn.
  4. (Actually, this is #6.) I've used 'em all, and honestly I mostly end up using Blogger.  I was also a big fan of WordPress, but the one site I had set up with it was great while it lasted, but then I lost all the content (I ran a hosted version on someone else's server).  So, that kinda sucked, and (through no fault of WordPress'), kind of left a bad taste in my mouth that I've yet to overcome.  Plus, Blogger is just so EASY.  (And, I'm pretty sure Google could sell me anything.  Anything.)
  5. I'm currently reading Michelle Knudsen's Evil Librarian, and I think it would make an awesome movie!  


  1. I'm sorry that you were super depressed Arianna, but glad that you decided to return to blogging. Your blog is super cute. I love the crumpled paper in the background :)
