As many of you know, I haven't posted on here in over a year...the truth is I struggled with what would be appropriate fodder for this semi-public forum. I have strong notions of privacy (even with my random, usually trivial, silly or boring) regarding my internal world--thoughts about myself, life, the people I love, even just the people I know slightly just seemed to precious to broadcast to any Joe Blow who happened to be clicking through the blogger "next blog" feature.

However, I've decided to take the plunge again (with some urging from my good friend and tireless blogger, Wendy) and reinvent this blog as a place for me to post my thoughts on the books I read.

As you probably know, (if you're reading this, you probably know me) I'm a grossly voracious reader. I probably average about 6 books a month, and that's a slow month.

The good, the bad, the ugly, it will all go here. My notions of privacy will probably still be a little uncomfortable with cracking open my head about the books I spend my free time on (giving you strong glimpses into who I am and why I read what I read), but I'm willing to go for it, in the interests of being both modern and entertaining, as well as creating a good record of what the heck I spend that free time on!

I look forward to receiving a lot of comments and reactions to my reviews and hope that there is strong differences of opinion, because I love debating books, almost as much as debating films.

Note to Pedram & Wen: I can be a lazy mofo, so keep me on track!

(Bonus points if you can figure out why this particular picture of Madonna's graces this entry)

Of course it is Madonna... she is constantly reinventing herself. Good job Rah! I am happy to hear you are back in the blogger world. I have slowed down recently as well but will try to post more frequently as well.

Wendy said...

I thought it was because you like her outfit!

Raheleh said...

Close, Pedrami. And no cigar, Wen. It's a picture from her "Reinvention" tour, see?

Dave said...

Hooray! If you can believe it, I also posted a blog entry lately.

While not as inspiring as yours, at least it's something!
