My name is Laura. I’m a writer, reader, mommy, wife, cook, baker, artist, dreamer, entrepreneur and INFP. I’ve got an MFA in fiction, a husband, two kids, a cat, a dog, and six chickens. I like to make things, be it a loaf of bread or a blouse, a short story or a comic strip. You can find out more about me at lauraender.wordpress.com. But I’m guessing, if you’re reading this, you’re asking yourself,
What is “The Sensitive, Bookish Type”?
First and foremost, it’s a quote from a movie: Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Holly says, “Did you ever steal anything from the five and ten? When you were a kid, I mean?” and Paul replies, “No. I’m the sensitive, bookish type.”
I think a lot of us can relate. Those of us who think, feel, and read; who love to learn and enjoy a good bit of dialogue. We see the world a little differently than what’s marketed as average. We’re doodlers and daydreamers. We have a great sense of humor.
When it began, “The Sensitive, Bookish Type” was an online bookstore, selling vintage books through Etsy. It’s since expanded into a personal/lifestyle blog and a boutique selling literary gifts, quotable clothing, and more. It’s a site where you’ll find something quirky, something fun–something a little bit different.
My mission: to bring you high-quality content and awesome products that feed your ever-hungry brain and help you understand and/or express who you are. Because I get the feeling, if you’re reading this, you’re probably the sensitive, bookish type.
