I am Bee, and I started this blog mainly because I had something to say, but wasn’t sure what it was yet, or who to say it to. As it turns out, what I talk about most is books: books I’ve read, books I want to read, places to read and buy books, etc. I also talk a lot about Manitoba, Canada, since I just moved here from the other side of the world in July 2010.
If I was to describe myself, I’d say I’m a pretty happy person. I have yet to come across anything in life that couldn’t be fixed with one or all of the following: a strong cup of coffee, a good book, a long walk, a chocolate bar (large), a good yoga session.
My passions, the things I think about most, are:
- planes and airports. Climbing aboard a plane to an exciting (or, hell, even an unexciting) destination is about as good as life can get for me
- book stores. I spend a lot of time in them, thinking about going to them, as well as fantasising about meeting a man who wants to spend Friday and Saturday nights drinking coffee and browsing at Chapters
- dogs. I don’t have one of my own but I adopt other people’s dogs wherever I go and they really are the best people. (Thank you to ‘The Fauves’ for putting that sentiment into song.)
I enjoy reading blogs, and thank you for stopping by at mine.
