Keira's favorite books »


I realise there are only 79 books there so far - but I'm sure to find some more books to read. Especially now that I have my kindle!

I'll have a widget on the side to keep track - and I'll endeavour to write a few reviews, updates on the books I have read.

As a kid I was a regular at the library. Every Saturday morning I'd greet the librarian as she opened our local library, armed with my library card and a packed lunch. I'd sit in the comfy couches and read until an hour before closing (midday) then pick out 12 books to take home and read over the week. I'd say goodbye to the librarian as she closed up and rode my bike home.

It's nice to have this part of me back. Embrace bookworm Keira!

What is this blog all about?

Good Question.

Originally, it was going to be a follow-up to One Girl + One Year: One Recovery. But, that "year" has now spanned nearly 3. Instead, it is going to be where I post more general stuff about my crazy life.

Even without my Eating Disorder my life is never normal. I have 2 rats and a cat who is scared of the rats. I seem to pick the least normal people to live with. Like attracts like, I guess. I am weird - I don't mean that in a derogatory sense - I am quirky and do silly things. I talk back to advertising in the shopping centre. I make jokes about my boobies secretly plotting against my face (when offered a push-up bra in the lingerie store), I have an ongoing pencil theatre saga that keeps me occupied during exam times.

Crazy doesn't have to be a negative thing. Crazy can be fun, crazy can be soothing, crazy can be the new normal.

This blog is about me exploring the things about me that make up Crazy Keira, that have nothing to do with mental my obsession with Scrubs and Linux OS...
