About

I hate everything.  Except books…and music.  Sometimes I hate those too.

This is what my friend Meg thinks I look like. It’s pretty accurate, except my hair isn’t that curly, and I don’t wear dresses with my name on them. Oh, and I have glasses.

But really, if you’d like to actually learn some things about me, you can just click here.  If you want to know about Meg, click here.  For more information about Dodisharkicorn, click here.

    • While she puts on a tough front, the booksnob isn’t as snobby as she’d like people to believe she is. True, she often scoffs at the musical and reading choices of people she speaks to, but rarely does she actually judge people based on what they’re reading or listening to.

      Really, that’s kind of a lie, too. She wants you to think that her snobbery is a front, but she’s always judging and will always remember that time that you posted With Arms Wide Open on facebook…and she won’t let you forget it.

      The truth is this: the booksnob is a ridiculously complicated enigma, that will change the rules of what she does/does not deem acceptable on a whim. She doesn’t make much sense at all and her readers aren’t really sure why they haven’t hit that ‘unsubscribe’ button yet. We think they feel sorry for her.

  1. Its good to be snobby about music! its the only way to find something really special…Also liking the link to ‘flogging molly’ there, so i’ll have to have a closer look at this blog. Thank you!

    • Thanks for visiting! I’m super snobby about music. You’ll find links to songs sprinkled throughout my posts, and Wordless Wednesday is almost always a song. I think the one time it was a picture, I still linked it to a song, so…

  3. I have, this morning, nominated you for a lovely blog award:

    http://stuffihadtoputsomewhere.wordpress.com/2012/09/03/one-lovely-blog-award/

    I don’t really do viral self-replicating blog awards but it was nice to be nominated and it gave me the chance to give something back: your musings on LOTR alone have had me in stitches.

    I handpicked the very best of the blogs I read. You deserve this, but please, please do not feel you have to accept it! However, if you do, you know what to do next.

  4. Booksnob,
    What was I doing procastinating on Twitter while I could have been following you all this time on WordPress? Le Clown is a wanker.

      • SJ,
        I’m happy to being among other snobs. Do you know the etymology of the word? It’s one I truly enjoy. SNOB comes from “sans noblesse”. It was written beside the names of bourgeois kids who went to the same school as aristocrats after the French Revolution. Kids without noble blood among the blue blooded. Interesting, no?

  5. Honest snobbery goes a long way in this world. It’s all that fake snobbery I could do without. It just gets everyone into trouble and leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Then you always want to brush your teeth.
