Welcome to Between the Covers! I am the author, Heather Lindskold, and I’d like to tell you a little about myself and why I started this blog.
I was born and raised in Scipio Center, NY, lived there until I was 22, then moved to Central PA in 1999. I live in Hollidaysburg with Eric (my awesome husband), our two wonderful kids, and our two crazy cats. I am currently a “stay-at-home”, but I’d love to go back to college for an English degree.
I love reading, dancing, and listening to good music. I was a dancer for many years (ballet, tap, jazz–until the age of 19), and still dance in my living room when no one is watching. Respect for good books and good music was instilled in me by my parents at an early age, and my passion for both has never waned.
I started this website for many reasons. For me, being a stay-at-home is a noble endeavor, but I need something to keep my brain active. I want to keep my writing skills in good shape, and I need an outlet for my creativity. A blog seemed to be the perfect choice–and what better subject to blog about than books, since reading has been a lifelong passion? In addition, I get lots of requests for book recommendations; now I can point people to Between the Covers, where they can check out what I’ve read and what I recommend to others.
My main goal for this website is to inspire others. If I can inspire a few people a week–even just a few people a month–to read more, I will feel like I’ve accomplished something great. So what are you waiting for? Start reading!
