Well, I’m guessing if you are still here, you’re wanting to know something about me, so here goes!
My name is actually Darren, the nickname of Bart, stems from a hairstyle I once had, which looking at the photo on the left you now would now probably never believe…
I’ve nearly always been a big reader, even as a young kid (one of the first books I can remember was The Town and the Country Mouse, a book whose story I knew so well at one point, that during a ‘bring-and-read’ at school, I actually told the teacher off for reading it wrong!)
Bart’s Bookshelf, developed out of my original but then just about defunct, personal blog. After a few years of really not reading as much as I would have liked, I decided it was time to do something about it and force myself to get back in to the habit of reading, and I was going to do this by setting myself some targets and reviewing what I read.
Little did I know, what would happen once I discovered reading challenges, and the fantastic book blogging community! Even though I am now reading more than ever, I still can’t out-strip the ever-growing TBR pile! 😉
And you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way!
