You may have noticed I get borrow a lot of books from the library. Two reasons the first being that living in a studio apartment there is not much room for books. I do have an e-reader though, it takes up very little room, which leads to the second reason, FREE BOOKS (and I’m cheap)!
On the book forum site Shelfari I admin a group called “Going to the Library“. Someone posted a link to this blog UNDERGROUND NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY: The Underground New York Public Library is a visual library featuring the Reading-Riders of the NYC subways. It is pictures of people on the subway reading, the caption states the book being read or an inquiry as to what book is being read, it’s pretty cool.
Being a regular subway rider, and a reader, I of course read on the subway. Wonder if I’ll get my 15 minutes (seconds?) of fame on this blog?
Check it out even though I’m not on it, its pretty cool.
I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
