My name is Rena, I am a writer and avid reader (sometimes called book-monster!). I wrote a cookbook entitled “Eating the Bible” which is currently represented by an agent and seeking a publisher. It is based on two years worth of weekly columns that I wrote for The Jerusalem Post over a period of two years that connected a recipe with a Biblical verse. I am also seeking representation for my first novel entitled “Blown to Smithereens.”
I have always been a voracious reader and came up with the idea of reading a book a day and blogging about it, only to discover that someone had already beat me to the punch! Nina Sankovitch read one book every day in 2008-2009 and has a forthcoming book called Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading that chronicles this experience. I’m not sure if I’m going to manage to read a book a day, but I’m going to try!
I don’t want to write reviews of books because you can find plenty of those in other places, I want to share my reading experience with you. I am especially interested in how reading some books can often lead us to read other books. In fact, those are my favorite types of books: books that force me to pick up more books!
