WHO IS THE BLOGGER?
The blogger’s name is Leo Lozada—seventeen years old. He lives in the Philippines with his family and he’s the eldest among three children. He studies at a state university, majoring in Accounting Technology. Most of the time, he finds himself lost in the world of imagination. Or, somewhere with the best people in the entire universe—his family and friends.
WHAT DOES THE BLOGGER LOVE?
Leo Lozada loves books unconditionally. He takes care of them. He treasures them. He protects them from any harm. Seeing a book in a bad shape really breaks his heart. Just, not the books.
WHAT DOES THE BLOGGER DESIRE?
He wants to be a well-known writer in the future. He wants his works to change people’s lives in the best of ways. He wants people to remember him when he dies. He wants people to read his books even if it’s a hundred years later.
WHAT IS THE BLOG?
The blog is called ‘VELLEOCHOR’. It is derived from the word ‘vellichor’ (from www.dictionaryofsorrows.com), meaning—the strange wistfulness of used bookstores, which are somehow infused with the passage of time (read more here). The blogger—Leo Lozada—combined it with his first name ‘Leo’, and that did the trick.
The blog was created for the purpose of sharing book reviews and other book-related stuff. It’s also for people to know that there are more amazing books out there, waiting to be read.
