I'm a bookworm, word nerd, coffee (and tea) lover, Marvel Cinematic Universe geek, circus aerialist, beginner yogi, vegetarian and puppy-mom (quite a mouthful right!).   I love travelling and I am great at multitasking (so I believe).

My book reviews are honest and to the point.

My love of reading started at a very young age.  My mom taught me how to read before I even started first grade and for that I will always be grateful.  There is a common misconception that people who read are boring introverts who do not know how to socialize.  Actually bookworms are the best personalities to socialize with - we have boundless knowledge on a vast number of subjects.  We are highly intelligent and have a better 'bigger-picture' concept of the world than most.  We have not lost our sense of adventure and imagination as we got older and our creativity drives us forward to achieve things most other people are too afraid to try.

I have a mild obsession with hashtags and so came OctothorpeReaderLeoraK to life.

The name OctothorpeReader (hashtagreader) came from understanding how a hashtag is used in social media to reach out and connect with like minded people.  It is used as a searching tool, a description and tag line and has changed the way we communicate with each other.  With this in mind, I wanted to start a book box service with a difference.  A unique experience like no other.  I will always stay loyal to my #bookstagram page and followers, as they have brought me this far.  I am just expanding on it and hoping to share something special with my book boxes.


One day on a blog post, I will tell you how the whole 'Bookshelf Experience' was born with the HUGE help of my beautiful friend Jen Rosey, but for now I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
