Today is Bookgirl's 13th birthday! I now have two teenagers in the house, as my sister--the one who is a professed religious at Casa Maria--took the time to point out in her birthday card to our girl. :)
Bookgirl's nickname comes from her great love of books. A particular favorite has been the Ranger's Apprentice series, which she devours avidly, but she likes just about any book that features magical kingdoms and worlds full of adventure.
A particular talent of Bookgirl's is her ability to draw and create. She enjoys drawing "manga" style characters and making pictures of book characters, both the ones she's read about and the ones she's made up on her own. She's started to do some computer drawing, too, and created a design which a local songwriter/singer used as a header on her January e-newsletter to fans, much to Bookgirl's delight.
As we celebrate her special day with her, I'm continuing the tradition of allowing my teenagers to speak for themselves in their birthday blog posts. So--here's Bookgirl!
Hi! This is Bookgirl! Thanks for letting me talk to you on my birthday.
I'm excited about finally being a teenager, and am having fun today on my birthday. It's different having our cat around on birthdays, and today he has been especially curious about all the decorations. He keeps trying to eat them.
As my mom already said, I love to read (hence the name, "Bookgirl"). I'm especially fond of adventure and fantasy books. Right now I'm re-reading an old favorite. We're having a quiet birthday at home today, and I'm looking forward to all of it!
Thanks again, and bye! ☺
