Books

These are not book reviews. These are my personal views on the books that I adore. I don’t expend my energy to write about a book that fails to agree with me. So here, you will find me abusing nice adjectives; you will find me singing praises.

No, authors don’t pay me to rave about their books, and I do not accept book-review requests. I write here for the most selfish reasons — I love reading, and writing. 🙂
