10 Facts about Lu

1. Lu is short for Lulu, which is the nickname I was given when I was 7 years old. To this day, when my mother calls me Leslie I’m pretty sure it’s because I haven’t cleaned my room.

2. I blog about books and my life. Eventually, if I get my act together, I’ll blog about crafts again.

3. I work at a major publishing house in NY. How I got here was a magical convergence of events in the universe that involved Twitter.

4. One day I’d like to write a book. Or a book of poetry. I should get started on that.

5. Sometimes I listen to music.

6. I often crochet.

7. I speak Spanish, but not as well as I did yesterday. I need to find someone to speak Spanish to!

8. I started this blog in the winter of 2008. I was a sophomore in college. Now I’m a proper grown-up with a full-time job.

9. I read all sorts of things. I will read anything once, mostly because I am the queen of not finishing a book. If a book isn’t doin it for me, I just stop reading and move on. I used to feel guilty about this. Now I don’t.

10. The etymology of ruminate gave me a minor mid-blog-life crisis, but I quickly got over it.
