Welcome to Books Beyond Measure!  Starting the blog is a bit of a big deal for me.  This is something I’ve been wanting to do for years, and I’ve finally decided to get on with it.  I’m a new professional who has been learning how to balance my reading life with my personal and professional lives.  Balancing everything hasn’t been as easy as one would hope, but I’m starting to get the hang of it!

With this blog, I’ll be chronicling my journey through my bookshelves as I catch up on reading and collect new editions to add to my shelves.  I have a wide range of interests, and will basically read anything that sounds interesting, though I do tend to lean more towards realistic fiction.  I have started trying to expand my TBR to include science fiction and fantasy, so we’ll see if my interests change.

I’m so excited to get going with this, and I plan on utilizing that enthusiasm while I can, so I except to get more posts up soon!

  1. Hello! It’s always lovely to see a new book blogger.

    Like you, I am most fond of realistic fiction and literary fiction but am trying to branch out to more fantasy and science fiction. I used to love fantasy during my preteen years but the love dissipated overtime. With the arrival of fantasy with a more literary bent, I think it’s time to reclaim that love.

    Work/life balance, I’ve been told, is one of the hardest things to figure out. It apparently takes years until you find the ideal equilibrium. Good luck!
