Hi, I’m Annie!

I am 30 years old and 5 foot 4 and a half inches… I get shorter by the decade, these days.

I love… libraries; crafts; zumba; dogs; NaNoWriMo; boardgames; cooking; sketching; painting; the BBC website; theatre; jazz; Sudoku; and travelling.

Things I’d like to learn in 2019:

  • amazing facts about the world
  • how to do 10,000 steps while sitting down
  • to write a story and like the words I place on the page
  • to snap my fingers like Samantha from Bewitched

Why not leave a comment below and introduce yourself?

“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.”

  1. Hi Annie! I’m Yamini (if you can’t pronounce it, just say Mini) and I love books too. 😀 Good luck with your blog. I enjoy reading your posts and will look forward to more. I also just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the super sweet blogging award if you’re interested! http://theskepticalreader.wordpress.com/2013/06/25/super-sweet-blogging-award/

    P.S. I really want a pet too but my family doesn’t let me get one. 😦 Maybe someday I can get a puppy of my dreams, what kind of pet do you want?

    • I would love 3 dogs (that’s the perfect number), but I work too much at the moment, live in a town and have no garden. Thanks for the nomination, I haven’t figured these awards out yet so for now I shall simply say thank you and hope that’s enough. 🙂

  2. Hello, Annie,

    My name is JD, and I’ve recently written and published a book, The Quest for Juice, a darkly comic contemporary novel (http://amazon.com/dp/0615826822/). I’ve read several of the reviews on your blog, and I’m interested in giving you my book for review. Do you accept requests from authors for reviews?

    Thanks for your time. I hope to hear back from you. 🙂

  8. Hi I created my own book blog recently and just discovered your blog and read your about page! I saw that you want to learn more about astronomy. There’s an awesome app that I love called Sky Guide! It’s really easy to use and shows you what’s in space when you move your phone around!
