Get To Know Me Tag:Gal Behind the Babbling – Is She ‘Normal’?

Dear fellow Babblers,

Now listen here. I command for you to wish this gal a big ‘ole “Congratulations”. But not to me – no, no, no – I ain’t that narcissistic – c’mon guys! The congrats goes to my fellow babblers; all y’all who have endured my endless bookish nonsense (if we dare call books printed pages of ‘nonsense’) for the past month. Yes, my blog has turned one month today.

I initially had set out to share with the book community here on wordpress as well as on Goodreads my thoughts on books by providing you guys with reviews and ramblings on shizz pertaining to books from my fears recently graduating from UCLA as a literature major to my meanderings on identity within the blogosphere and we must not forget the actual book reviews ’cause what’s a book blog that does not review books (another discussion in itself – to be posted soon – stay tuned kiddos!) ?

So here we are now, precisely thirty days later: babbler who babbles about books and has a fear of a hopeless future hidden amongst piles and piles of written stories. Is there no more to this psychotic existent ? Preach Delphine! Preach!

We are already halfway through the year, and while I’m sure all of us bibliophiles are fretting over our monthly wrap-ups and spending the next 48 hours choosing the next 20 books (I’ll be lucky if I can shut my mouth long enough to get through at least 10!), I decided as a celebratory post not for me, but for any of you that care who the voice behind the babbling actually is (yes, I do existent, a complete, whole person with mind and body – Descartes may disagree with that statement, but omg Delphine: please shut up and get to the tag part!), I would tag myself in May @ Forever and Everly’s and Vrinda@abookishhuman ‘Get to know me’ Tag.

Babbles on Book Buying Habits

Dear fellow babblers,

UCLA has finally managed to bid farewell to the babbler – and no, I was not finally kicked to USC for my endless babbles… Your fellow babbler graduated! Now I get to devote the rest of my meaningless life as a full-time, thriving, unpaid book reviewer, writing posts few of you will likely finish reading – ain’t no babbler like another babbler!

The last few days festivities have resulted in little time spent reading, and no doubt little time spent here. So here I sit…banana in hand, looking out to the busy street below my second floor apartment window. Here in Los Angeles. Approximately 8:38 pm with a bright computer screen blinding me. I spent the last two hours blog hopping in hopes of gaining some insightful idea on what to ” book chat ” about. Eventually I discovered Thrice Read’s totally profesh site and thought, ” Hey Delphine, why not tag yourself and join the rest of your fellow book reviewers in this book tag thing “.
