F. Scott Fitzgerald said it best, “Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” So too it seems does this blog. I can’t believe it has been a year since I took the time to carve out this small space, but I am finally ready to furnish it.

So then, what does “Decidedly Bookish” mean and why should it earn your readership?

When puzzling over a name for this blog and subsequent social media branding, I wanted something simple, memorable and most importantly representative of who I am and what I have to offer. Though I am a multifaceted person with various interests, the truth remains, that I am a reader at heart and a bibliophile through and through (smell of books anyone?). It also became readily apparent that even when I attempted to discuss other points of interest it always came back to something I had read or wanted to read in the end. Therefore, Decidedly Bookish came into being.

Decidedly Bookish is for those who easily get lost in the bindings of a good novel or two. Who gladly trade sleeping hours for reading hours, and who are on the constant hunt for their next big read. It is also a place for reviews, opinions and news about bookish things, such as: authors, debuts, series and stand-alones. It is for learning about book-related products, gaining ideas for reading lists and for hopefully building a community of readers who enjoy engaging and interacting with each other.

So please check back often as the blog begins to grow. Bring a mug of something warm and feel free to explore.
