About Me

Hi! My name is Catherine and I love books!

I am the kind of person who crazily jumps up and down when she discovers a new amazing book to love and generally gets extremely excited (probably TOO excited, sometimes) at the mere thought of reading. 

I love reading books, talking about books, writing about books, thrusting books somewhat over-excitedly at people  recommending beloved books to people, buying books, flicking through the pages of a new book and smelling that new book smell, admiring the covers of pretty books, lovingly stroking the covers of glossy new books...um...well, you get the idea...

If you have any questions or simply want to enthuse about books... please feel free to contact me at
thebookparade@gmail.com !

  1. Haha, you sound just like me. I also run around extremely excited and waving books at my friends wanting them to read them. Mainly so I can talk on and on about the book with someone else whose read it!

  2. Hi Catherine
