About Me

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. . . . What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.”

- Henry David Thoreau

About This Blog

Like most bookworms reading is as essential to me as breathing. I don’t know where I’ll be without it.

1330v is my baby. When I’m not taking care of my family or studying, this is where you will find me. I don’t review every book I read only the ones that I  can add to the conversation about them.

I’m also on the advisory board for Bloggers Recommend, a monthly online newsletter that’s written for the general public. You can find a sample issue here.

I’m becoming a pretty eclectic reader. As a mom to three beautiful children, I read tons of children’s and middle school reads. I don’t read young adult or new adult books very often. I love fiction and non-fiction reads. Fantasy, dystopian, science fiction, children’s, young adult, graphic novels, memoirs, realistic fiction. . . if the story is good, I’m eager to read it.

Who I am

Currently I’m a college student majoring in English Literature Sociology English Literature Anthropology in Southern California. After the completion of my Bachelor’s degree, I’m off to get my Master’s in Library Science or Anthropology. My dream jobs include becoming a  librarian or an anthropologist, and owning my own bookstore.

  1. Many years ago I was an English Lit major at UCLA – too bad library science wasn’t on my radar back then. Anyway, you mentioned a read-a-thon but I don’t know about it. Would love to hear more. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  2. I think Anne Lamott is an amazing writer. Though I’ve only read one of her books (Bird By Bird) I think she’s really good at what she does.

    I don’t know if you’re into period novels, but I just finished The Glass of Time by Michael Cox and I thought it was good (though a bit long) so if you get the chance maybe you could read it. I think you’ll enjoy it. :]

  3. I’m going to have to read Anne Lamott, she’s an author I’m not familiar with. I frequently wish I’d done what you’re doing! To spend your days with books, and get paid for it…that would be the life!

    I wanted to stop by and say thanks for following my blog! It’s a wee little thing, and I’m sure as heck not close to the level of blogger so many other book bloggers are, but I really appreciate it when people hit the “follow” button. Actually, I wonder sometimes how people manage to have such terrific blogs, and still find time for their lives, I figure I must be a real poor time manager, because I sure can’t seem to figure out how to do it all. It’s that pesky need to take time off for sleep that gets me!

    Thanks again!

  4. I started a masters in library science before my first son as born but children and a few moves have put that on the back burner for now. It is one of my dream jobs!
