About the BLOGGER
My name is Ashley and I'm still a resident of High School. I admit that I'm new to this kind of blogging. I've had a personal Livejournal the past five years in my life, but the only person who sees any of those posts is-well, me. But I have been a lover of books my entire life. It all really began when I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in first grade. I still have the piece of paper scrawled with misspelled words that I wrote on the day I finished that book, expressing my happiness at finally reading "a real book." And it all just grew from there. Growing up, I devoured at least a book or two a day. I couldn't get enough of reading.

And while my love for books and for the insight they give me has not left me, it changed as I was promoted to middle school and then onto high school. As homework and projects and school stress piled up, I found myself reading less and less until all I mostly read was what was required in English class. I still read for fun, but not as often as I wished I could. Today, much of that is still the same. But I never stop beating myself over for it, and "Read More Again" always makes it near the top of my New Year's Resolutions. Every single year.

This blog is a personal project in away. It's a way to encourage me to read more again and to rediscover that hunger I once had for reading. I've always been interested in reading, writing, editing, graphics, the publishing world, etc. A blog seems like a fun way to put all of those things together.

Just like this About will change overtime, I'm planning to keep experimenting and take it all in as a learning experience. Here's to an exciting journey ahead!
