There is nothing like reading to open one’s mind to the world at large, and I mean this in every possible way. Therefore, since I like to think [if I may say so (we’re all given to our illusions)] that I would like to know more about the world I live in – I LOVE books. There is nothing more pleasurable than immersing yourself in a book and forgetting your world (even if it is for the length of the book).
That said, for your browsing convenience, I will link all the books that I’ve reviewed so far. I will add on to this page as I share more books with you.
