About this blog

The purpose of this blog is to share my love of reading. I want to write about books that I’ve read and loved in the hope that they will find more readers. I read for pleasure, so my choice of books is dictated by my taste which is personal and somewhat eclectic.

I tend to read a good deal of non-fiction. Classics and literary fiction don’t usually make it to my bookshelves. And a lot of the books I pick up are ones that came out years, if not decades ago.

One of my goals with this blog is to write about books and writers who have either been forgotten or who never got the attention that they deserved in the first place. This blog will also feature reviews of films based on books that I’ve recommended, if the film in question happens to be a good translation from page to screen.

I read what I like, so if a book does not capture my interest, I either give up on it or I put it aside to try again later. I don’t feel compelled to finish a book, just because I started reading it. So, you won’t find any bad reviews here. If I write about a book, it will be because I loved it. I will, of course, point out any flaws and disappointments in a book that I loved overall, but I’m not going to waste my time reading a book that I don’t like and then writing a searing review of it. I’ll leave that to the literary critics who don’t get to choose what they read.
