I pour my third cup of green tea. "Fuck it." I hit publish.

A blog. I'm still talking myself into it.

In 2017, I will read well over 100 books. Last year, I read almost as many and the year before that, the same. It's what I do when I get home from work. It's how I spend my Sundays. It's my favorite past time and, besides arguably "efficiency," it may be my only skill.

I've long desired not just to read but to write. Not the memos and emails and reports I write for my day job, but something more sprawling, ambitious.

So here it is: my first blog. If you enjoy books, literary analysis, and book reviews, we have that in common. Maybe you'll enjoy reading about it. I know I'd enjoy hearing from you. Consider subscribing so you can keep tabs as this grows.

Let's do this.
