Well, hello there internets.
I feel an introduction might be in order. My name is Jen a.k.a. the Endangered Bookeater.
My blog’s name arose out of a lifelong love of reading – I’ve been voraciously devouring books for as long as I can remember (and even before my memory kicked in, according to outside sources). While I know that out there in the big wide world there are many others just like me, we do tend to be a skittish and quiet species. This has often left me feeling a bit like an endangered species; surrounded by extroverts all loudly extolling the virtues of loud things, and places, and general chaos.
You can expect assorted mutterings on the frustrations of learning languages: my project for this year is to master some basic Spanish/French/Russian/Ukrainian/and so on. All I can manage at this point is some indelicate language followed by a request for the bathroom, so I’ll refrain from demonstrating any of those dubious skills just yet.
I’m also into an eco-everything sort of lifestyle – or at least I try – and this lends itself pretty naturally to a love of DIY. Be it cooking, baking, sewing, or improving my green thumb, I love to create almost anything from scratch. Pictures will likely be forthcoming, along with a tasty recipe or two.
Also included: assorted travel musings, and perhaps the odd book recommendation!
I hope that with your help we can create an interesting and engaging little community here, and that my words find a happy home in your head, Future Reader.
Much internetty love,
An endangered bookeater
