My name is Kate, and I am a book addict. Ever since I was a little girl I have loved reading and talking about books. There is something so magical about the power that stories have to transport the reader to another world; I became hooked as a kid and haven't been able to stop.

First and foremost, I am a reader (and a voracious one at that)! I'll devour pretty much any book I can get my hands on; from Canadian literary fiction to young adult fantasy, from nonfiction books about animals to sweeping historical fiction and lots of stuff in between. I have eclectic tastes in books, to say the least. I am not a professional book reviewer, just a girl with an insatiable desire to give books, writers and publishers some loving.

I do have educational and professional book and publishing experience; I am a graduate of Humber College's Creative Book Publishing Program in Toronto and have experience writing about and promoting Canadian books and authors through internships with Open Book: OntarioProject Bookmark Canada and First Book Canada. I have also worked at a library and as a bookseller. What I love more than anything is connecting readers to great books, and that is the main purpose of this blog.

I do have some other interests besides reading and talking about books (despite what my family and friends might tell you) and they include cooking and baking, theatre, movies, music, veganism and tea.
