Well, hello

Well, hello! There are far more of you out there than there used to be. If I were in a room with all of you, I'd probably be scratching my head and wondering how we all fit in there! Since there was such an enormous leap over this past weekend (due to the recent Got Books? event), I thought today would be a good time to do a few introductions.

Hi, I'm Rebecca Wells. (Not that Rebecca Wells. In case you were wondering.) I love many things in life, especially reading and writing, hence the blog. Here, I talk a little about writing and a lot about reading, among other things. I've been blogging here since December, but I still consider Elephants On Trapezes a work in progress - I tend to fiddle with things: my pages, features, formats... If you have any recommendations for things you like to see on your favorite blogs, I'd love to hear them.

Astute readers may notice that Elephants On Trapezes has been bereft of book reviews recently. There's a reason for that. I graduated from college in May and in lieu of immediate job hunting, I chose to attend the Denver Publishing Institute, where I have been for the past two weeks (and will remain for the next). Since I took a plane out to Colorado, I was sadly limited in the number of books I brought with me. (Also, this program is intense - we're in class from 9-5, which leaves rather less time for reading.)

All this means I haven't been reading nearly as much as I usually do. Which means less book reviews on this blog than there usually are, especially since I don't have a library membership here in Denver. I expect the number of book reviews on this blog to pick up significantly in two weeks, once I'm back home. In the meantime, you can expect to hear some thoughts about reading and writing, as well as some of the fascinating things I'm learning here at DPI.

I think that's all for now. I've been checking out all your book recommendations from the Got Books? event. They are wildly diverse and pretty awesome, all around - so awesome I'll probably write a whole post about them in a few days. Cheers!
