I’m Sasha, and I live in Lincoln, Nebraska, in a wonderful little yellow house. I live with my fourteen-year-old son (The Boy), my aging father (Poppie) and the best Sheltie in the world (Ruby). While our family may be a non-traditional one, it’s a fun and mostly happy one, and I’m so lucky and grateful to be a part of it. Due to some health and mobility issues, I don’t spend a lot of time outside of my home right now, and when I’m not caring for my family or our home, I’m reading. Or reading about reading. Or writing about reading… Hence the phrase, “Pathologically Literate“. I will admit that I stole my blog’s name from author Kate Morton, who describes a character in her book, The Distant Hours, as “pathologically literate”. I loved that term and thought it encapsulated all that I am. I am a Reader. I Read. Whatever I can, wherever I can, whenever I can.
Pathologically Literate is a blog about books, reading, and other little bits of life that I feel the need to expand on. You see, I love reading and I love books – but no one in my life loves them the way I do, and so I have no one to babble on to about these things. This is where this blog comes in. I now will have somewhere to go when I want to hold forth my fine thoughts and opinions on these matters… I hope to hear your comments and thoughts on the things that I share here as well.
10/6/2013: We recently began our journey as a homeschooling family, so you can look forward to hearing about our adventures in that area as well. It was a big leap of faith for us, but we’re so happy and excited for this new season in our life!
Thank you for joining me on Pathologically Literate!
