BookLured is the online exploratorium of Teresa Ingraham, yours truly, an avid reader and in-progress writer. This cross-disciplinary blog is for any humanities or social sciences nerd with a love for learning and reading. I will also be sharing bits of my own creative writing from time to time. Mostly, it’s a place for me to collect my musings about recent reading and human goings-on, and share discoveries that I find too exciting to keep to myself.
A native of Baltimore, Maryland, I enjoy haunting local book stores, drinking copious amounts of coffee, snacking on old-bay drenched crabs, and tormenting my three cats— preferably all at the same time, but I can’t have everything. I spend much more of my free time reading than writing, a habit that I’m trying to fix. When I’m not scrolling through the latest posts on r/psychology, you might find me in the kitchen trying to emulate Julia Child, or just trolling Zillow for that ever elusive Hobbiton real estate.
