Now that I am contributor to this blog, I thought I would introduce myself before I started posting reviews, opinions, etc.
My name is Greg and I'm a senior in High School this year. And yes, that means that I'm graduating in less than a month. WOOT! I'm going to be an English Major at the Honors College of Texas Tech University this August, and I am thrilled to be a part of this blog. All of the people that I've seen associated with the Texas A&M Commerce English Department seem incredibly friendly and kind.
I enjoy reading and writing to the fullest extent. In fact, I am a librophile (one who has a deep love for books) and a librarian. I'm an assistant librarian in my hometown and I'm gonna have to say that that is the best job imaginable. What could be better than working while surrounded by thousands of books? If you enjoy literary matters as much as I do, then we'll get along swell. [I don't think that anybody uses the word "swell" anymore, and so I just made myself sound like a ninety-year-old English gentleman....oh well]
I hope to be a Professor of English/Writer someday. Books I enjoy include: Angels and Demons [Dan Brown is a genius], Along Came a Spider [James Patterson is also incredibly awesome], Blink [Ted Dekker has his moments], and The Midnighters Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld. My favorite classics include: The Fountainhead [Ayn Rand's books make me question everything I thought I knew], The Great Gatsby, The Grapes of Wrath, Brave New World, and Alas, Babylon [I love those last two for their Apocalyptic Themes.] Two of my all-time favorite books are You Don't Know Me by David Klass and Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer, but almost no one has ever heard of those books.
If you were able to read this entire post then I applaud you, and I hope to post my first opinion/review soon. Feel free to post responses to anything I post.
Thanks for reading!
