Once Upon A Bookshelf

A Reader's Blog


The Girl Behind the Blog

I am a self-proclaimed geek and fangirl. I read geeky things. I go to scifi conventions. I love cult shows and movies.

When I am not obsessing, fangirling and reading, I work as graphic designer. Currently I am a web designer at Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies. I also freelance. (Hey look, it’s my portfolio!) I’m passionate about good typography, balance, accessibility and well-written content.

I’m a gluten free foodie. While I don’t like creating my own recipes, I love baking, cooking and eating. I also am one of those people who (gasp!) take pictures of what they’re eating and drinking – especially if it’s got a pretty label.

The Blog

Once Upon a Bookshelf started in 2005 as a place to keep track of what I have read. Over the past few years this has evolved into more than just book reviews, and has become my own personal blog. I have been blogging in one form or another since freshman year in university, over a decade ago. While those blogs no longer exist, I’m sure remnants can be found online if you dig hard enough. Not that I’m recommending that.
