The Site

Distant Hum is a blog for me, Anna, to share books I’ve read and music I’m into. I’ll occasionally mention books I didn’t like much, but for the most part this site will be filled with what I did enjoy so expect recommendations more than warnings. While I have my favorite genres, what I write about isn’t limited to any particular areas of the literary and musical worlds so nothing is off limits.

The name “Distant Hum” is a lyric from one of my favorite Kevin Devine songs. (I have a lot of favorite Kevin Devine songs.)

About Me

I’m a 29-year-old bookworm and concert-goer living in the Philadelphia area. I can also be found yelling at soccer on television and drinking tea. Often at the same time, sometimes to a disastrous end. This is my corner of the internet to talk about what I’m listening to and reading.

I went to school for graphic design and am also fond of writing, hence this website. You can see some of my work over on my personal site.
