About

Welcome to my blog! I have been blogging for almost a year, and cannot wait to continue to share my musings, explorations, reviews, and opinions on anything related to literature, books, and book culture. Continue to check in on the website, as I will be updating posts as the ideas escape my brain and become reality.

I hope that this blog will amuse you, enlighten you, and engage you.

What is a Miskatonic Dropout?

Within the works of H.P. Lovecraft, there exists an imaginary town called Arkham. Miskatonic University is the name of the college that resides there. Lovecraft described Miskatonic University as an esteemed center of learning and esoteric knowledge.

As I created my blog address and name, I wanted to connect my love of books with my affection for the Weird tales of Lovecraft – but I also wanted to have some fun.  I added the “dropout” as a way to poke fun at the seriousness of blogging and of Lovecraft. The name stuck, and the rest is social media history.
