Welcome to the Bibliofile! I’m Jenn. I like books, and I like people who like books. I live in the SF Bay area (in Oakland), and I’m originally from Plano, Texas. I spend my days hanging with a very cute white, fluffy dog named Peanut. She’s the best.
Books have always been my way of escaping my little bubble and entering into another world. I’ve loved reading my entire life. I read all sorts of things, but mostly let my curiosity dictate what to read next. I’ll sometimes slog through a hardcore literary novel just for the sake of being able to say I did it, but I’m at heart a pleasure reader. I read because it’s fun.
I’ve been blogging ever since blogging existed. I started this site in particular as a place where I could post bits and pieces of book reviews from old blogs, plus a place to post some new stuff from time-to-time. The older posts have been imported over from other blogs and places.
The types of books I’m interested in:
- Literary Fiction
- Historical Fiction
- Memoirs or Biographies
- Humorists or Satirists
- Popular Non-Fiction
- Business and Leadership
Review Policy: I generally only review books in the genres listed above, and anything I would consider would likely be similar to other things I’ve reviewed previously. Either ebooks or physical copies are fine. I don’t review self-published books. If you have something you think would be good for the blog, feel free to reach out with a description of the book. Thanks!
Please don’t feel like you need to craft a personal message to me. Your time is valuable and should be spent writing! I’ll know based on your book description (and any links, images, etc.) if it’s something I’m interested in and will follow up if so. As long as you are not spamming me, I don’t mind if it’s boilerplate.
Partnerships: I don’t accept compensation in exchange for positive reviews. I would love to host various forms of other literary content (giveaways, author interviews, etc.) but only for books similar to those on The Bibliofile. If you have something like that, please do reach out here. The Bibliofile is part of the Creative Market Partner and Amazon Associates programs.
