About My Sister
Ok, story time! I bet you didn’t know this, but I started this blog because of my sister. One day she walked into the room we share and said, “You should start a blog.”
“What would I write a blog about?”
“Reading the 1001 books.”
At first I scoffed at the idea because she seemed to think a blog would be a great way to make money, which I didn’t think was very likely. But the next day at work I started thinking about it. I have a lot of time to think at my job because it requires a kind of on and off concentration. When you’re walking from place to place, as long as you keep in mind where you’re going and what you need once you get there, you can let your mind wander. Maybe that sounds bad, but, trust me, my job can get pretty boring otherwise.
So I thought about it, and the more I did the more fun it seemed like it could be. I made “Books I’ve Read” page, the “About” page, and my first post, and I showed her. I told her that I wanted to take all my own photos for the site, and that was when she offered to draw some pictures of things I couldn’t take photos of. She was really busy preparing to be the lead in a local play. (She’s actually getting ready for a perfomance right now.) But earlier today she finished one that I had requested for my review of The Time Machine. You can see it below.
Hopefully she’ll have time to draw lots more for me because this one’s awesome! Don’t you think so?
