Hi! I'm Jennine and this is my book blog, My Life in Books. I'm coming to you from a tiny town directly on the eastern Ohio border, where I've lived my entire life. Pennsylvania is only five minutes from my house, where my in-laws live and I teach at the PA school from which my husband graduated. Pittsburgh is the closest big city, a 45 minute drive. So I spend as much time in Western PA as I do in Ohio.
My Life in Books started on July 12, 2012 as a writing blog called Keep Inspired. Although I do consider myself a writer, within months of blogging I found that both blogging and serious writing take serious amounts of time. Being a high school English/Composition teacher and raising three kids take time as well, but they are a priority over any writing I do. I also volunteer among various local community services and love to hang out with friends. I soon realized that between reading and writing, reading is my true love. I could go without writing, but I would never go without reading. In March of 2013 I changed the name of my blog to My Life in Books, became connected with the awesome book blogosphere, and haven't looked back. It has been a blast and the people I've met have challenged me in ways I would never have expected.
While I may put serious writing time on the back burner, my books I can't. On My Life in Books you can always expect to find something bookish: book reviews, guest posts, reading challenges, quote discussions, book ponderings, bookish trips, book businesses/projects, and anything else book related (from talking about book accessories to a new book haul of my own). It's limitless really...if it's book related, it's here. I also have a blogroll of amazing book bloggers who cover a multitude of book related topics.
So sit back, relax, subscribe to my posts by email (on the home page), and join me on this bookish adventure!
