Welcome! Bookswept is a collection of literary quotes, reflections, and personal storytelling.


My name is Yuri Hobart and I live in beautiful California.


Fonts: LTC Bodoni 175, Acta Display, Adobe Caslon, Courier Prime, and Adobe Jenson.

Theme: I designed Bookswept on Blogger before migrating to WordPress, and the theme is built on underscores.

Photos: From the beginning of Bookswept to the post for “The Marriage Plot,” the photos used are those largely found and saved over a long period of time. I have since tried to track down the source of every photo, without luck. I take no credit for these photos. If you come across an uncredited photo and are able to share the source, please email me so that I can give due credit. Beginning with the post for “The Fault in Our Stars,” all photos are my own unless otherwise noted.
