First Post!

I've been meaning to start a book review blog for a long time. When I heard that Pajiba, one of my favorite movie/book review sites, was beginning a new round of the Cannonball Read (a challenge to read 52 books in one year), I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to get around to setting up a site. I've wanted to do the challenge for a while, but I haven't had the time with school/work/generally being a college student. Now that I'm a junior, though, and pretty much only taking literature and writing classes, I'm averaging two books a week anyway.

So this blog will feature reviews of books I read for class as well as books I am reading for pleasure (expect a lot more of those during December/January and the summer). I will also review some short stories and essays, since I read a lot of those. I might expand at some point to include music/movies/other things, but for now just expect lots of books and maybe some general ramblings on whatever I feel like talking about. We'll see how it goes.

So enjoy! My first review should be posted sometime this weekend.
