Just Jen

My name is Jennifer, but feel free to call me Jen or Jenny, the most common nicknames for the world's most common English name for a girl. But I'd like to think I'm anything but ordinary. Just ask my family and nearest and dearest. Hell, ask my four-legged baby boy, Oliver. He'll confirm just how extraordinary *cough*WEIRD*cough* I am.

I read. A LOT. And I'm somewhat of a book hoarder--both the digital and traditional varieties--so my bookshelves literally runneth over. So, what's a girl to do? Well, I was already posting my reviews on Goodreads a few years back, and then finally decided to just go ahead and whip together a very basic blog, Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.

A year later and after getting tired of seeing other blogs with the word "bookaholic" in their title, I decided to change the name of my blog. Why Dog-Eared Daydreams? I daydream. A LOT. When I'm not reading, of course. Ironically, I don't dog-ear my books. I consider that sacrilege and there's a reason bookmarks were created. There also happens to be more of variety nowadays, so you're not stuck with the cardboard ones that had a tassel on top like I did as a kid. But I digress... Dog-eared pages are just a no-no, and they're right up there with cracks on a book's spine. *shudder* Why would you do that to your book?! And there I go, digressing again... *sigh*

Anyhoo, Dog-Eared Daydreams is my little reading corner on the internet. For now, it's been mostly reviews and round-ups of my favorites for each year. I hope to post more of my thoughts and feelings when it comes to books in general and more particular issues, but we'll see how that goes.

So again, I'm Jen, and this is my book blog, Dog-Eared Daydreams. Peruse a bit. Leave a comment if you feel inclined to do so (just don't be rude and don't spam since the unless Spam I like is the one that comes in a can). You can get in touch with me by clicking on the side menu and leaving me a message or follow me on Twitter or Google+. I'm also on Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr, and the latter two are ones I've never posted on while IG isn't a platform I update regularly (long story). I AM on Facebook, but it's set on private, but hey, if you can find me there, feel free to leave me a PM. 😉

'K, thanks, bye!
