Hello! My name is Andreea. I created this online reading journal to catalog my reading experience. This blog holds me accountable for my opinions on a book which motivates me to read carefully. I also use this platform to review incoming books, share my opinions, and track some of my thoughts on the profession of librarianship.
A little bit about me: I am a librarian. I currently work at small rare book library at the University of Toronto. Working with rare books has made me find the honest truth in the statement: “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.”
I raid bookstores everywhere I go, and I love recommending books to people (it gets out of hand sometimes). I’m a bit of a research nerd and like to throw myself into topics. I like to post both here and also on my YouTube channel (Infinite Text).
*The title of this blog is inspired by David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest — He is an author I’ve admired and his essays are extraordinary, but the length, (including footnotes, and endnotes) of Infinite Jest has always made me want to call it ‘infinite text’ in conversation
Several excerpts from my reviews have been featured in print:
