A Little About Myself
My name is Mya and I am Canadian bookworm who enjoys: books (obviously), tea, arts & crafts, adventures outside, and I appear to be collecting Batman fandom items (I definitely do not own a 2 foot tall Batman action figure that entertains a twenty-something-year-old far more than it should ;P — OK I do own an over-sized Batman action figure, but who’s going to judge?).
When I am not reading I am either: at work (making money to pay for my latest book haul), catching up with friends, hanging out with my common-law boyfriend (Josh), outside adventuring, at the lake, or visiting family.
Do I get paid to blog?
I do not get any financial benefit to having this blog. I do this in my free time because I love reading and talking about books.
How many books do I read a year?
The quick answer: approx. 30 – 50 books on average per year. The exact range is hard to say.
I graduated from university a few years ago and I am still trying to determine what my leisure reading amount really is. When I was taking classes I felt if I was reading I might as well be reading my textbooks and I took on lots of extracurricular activities (more than I should have), which limited my personal reading time. When I was in university I read about 15 – 20 books, outside of required school reading, a year.
Now that I have been out of school for a few years this number has increased but I wouldn’t say its the same year after year. I read a lot less than other book bloggers out there simply because I’m mood reader: I could go for a week without reading, other times I’ll finish two to three books in a week — depends on what’s happening in my personal life. But one this is certain: I always have at least one book with me at all times.
Am I accepting books for review?
Yes, I am currently accepting books for review. Please refer to my Review Policy for details on what I will/won’t read.
What does your logo mean?
I created this logo with the idea of both books and blogging in mind. My logo features a laptop and a book for two reasons:
(1) to show my support for both print and digital reading formats
(2) demonstrate my own progress from reading to posting my thoughts online
