The Literary Bunny is a blog about books, reading and other bookish related issues and will contain reviews and more. I try to blog frequently but since the blog mostly consists of reviews, I need time to actually read the books before I can post about them.
The name comes from the bunnies I used to have. At some point, their favorite spot was on a bookshelf, between two rows of books. They used to nibble the book so suddenly we discovered that parts of books had gone missing because the bunnies had been munching. Try explaining that when you hand in a library book! Anyway, bunnies are some of my favorite animals and even though I don’t have any at the moment, it still felt right to use this as the name for my blog.
I’ve been an avid reader since I was very young and read somewhere from 50-100 books a year – mostly fiction, but also a bit of non-fiction and biographies. In fiction I prefer contemporary novels, fantasy and classics but I still read a lot of other books as well and I don’t shy away from graphic novels and even manga.
I have a master degree in Philosophy. Therefore, a bit of philosophy will appear from time to time. A summary of my master thesis with the title ‘I collect, therefore I am’. The collection as an example of the human relation to the material reality can be found here.
Also, since I’m from Denmark, I’ll try to do some posts about Danish literature – I haven’t been doing very good with this so far but I hope to be a little better. I do prefer reading in English (and it would be silly to read Danish novels translated to English) so I’m not sure how many I will read but I will try to do at least a little bit.
I find China, Chinese history and culture, so very interesting so I’ve started reading novels taken place in China or by Chinese authors. I hope to do even more with this in the future.
