A change of scenery

The time has come—for The Book Muncher to start college.

That’s right, the fourteen-year-old girl who started this blog has graduated high school and is going to be a college student! And with college comes a lot of changes, particularly the most important one: a change of scenery, which is just a fancy way of saying, I’m moving.

I’m usually not so public on my blog about the comings and goings of my life, but I feel this move is also important for the future of my blog. I will be moving to the grand City of New York to attend Barnard College.

(EDIT: For those of you interested, I plan to study comparative literature.)

This is extremely exciting for me. I’ve dreamed of living in NYC for a while now because it’s the center of the book publishing industry, where I hope to work someday. And since NYC is where all (or most) of the big publishers are located, there’s always lots of book signings, author events, and book conventions. Hello BEA!

I know that my work load will increase when I start college but I don’t anticipate having to stop book reviewing. First of all, I love it too much. And since I love it too much, I will find the time to read and blog.

Also, if there are any book reviewers or authors or readers in New York City, yes, I want to meet you! Being without a car or driver’s license, it’s been difficult for me to get to events here in the OC. But New York has a fabulous public transportation system, so I’m looking forward to meeting and chatting up book bloggers.

And that's all for now!
