About Me

I have always been a bookworm, which is probably one reason why I majored in English.  My mother told me that I always had a book in my and I remember in elementary school on our trips to the library I was always the last one to line up and to check out my books.

I am a voracious reader and tend to spend entirely to much time and money in the bookstore.  I have an iPad, which has become my buddy, since I’m back in school the less bulk I have to carry the better.  I  still much prefer to hold a book in my hand  than read it on a computer, so perhaps after I finish my studies I can get back t the tactile.

About The Broken Spine

The Broken Spine actually was my brain child for a book club. It got off to a pretty good start, but then unfortunately dissipated due to people’s schedules.  Even so that has not stopped me from reading, but what it has stopped to some degree is discussing books with others.

I decide to start The Broken Spine blog in order to share my thoughts on the books I’ve read, I’m reading, or contemplating reading. Please feel free to make suggestions as I’m always looking for new books. And most importantly, please feel free to engage me in a discussion. I’d love to know what your thoughts, if you’ve read the book. too.

So Why This Blog?

I love to read.  I love to write.  I love to critique. I love to explore new literature and rediscover the classics.  I also started this blog because I wanted to take an opportunity to write about literature in a non critical way.  As an English major you’re trained to critically interpret and write about literature and I wanted to take a step back and read just for pleasure.  It’s highly unlikely I will be able to throw all those years of training out the window, but I’m definitely going to try and give a less critical or rather less academic critique and analysis of the literature I read.

  1. Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Been away for a while, but now I wanted to catch up and say “thank you… I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

    UNCLE SPIKE
