What the Blog is About

One of my favourite quotes is from Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger: ”We live in a world where people like telling you what you don’t have and not what you have.I try to tell my players what they have.” It is with Wenger’s philosophy that I set this blog and write my posts.

My blog has two aims: to show people the beauty of books and to encourage and help them pick the one that they will most likely appreciate.I reckon that every novel is worth a read and I do my best to reveal their beauty in my reviews.I however know that tastes differ,and thus objectively point out those characteristics of a novel which might not appeal to everyone – I believe it is essential to do so,lest the reader is disappointed with the book as a result of having had wrong expectations from it.You can see my reviews here.

Before I continue,I wish to point out that you will not find young adult fictions here.I mostly read classics or nominees and winners of prestigious literary competitions – I’m on a quest to read the best books of all time.

I have been studying English in Literature and Mathematics concomitantly for a good while,but I had to make one choice for university,and I opted for the latter.This blog is a way for me to keep my passion for literature alive.I like looking for allegories,symbolisms,meanings and fun facts about authors and books over the net and sharing them here; my blog is both a place to share my fondness for reading and one of interest for random visitors who wish to know more about a book they have read or are about to read.I hope you will be interested in my articles and have fun browsing though my favourite quotes and some trivia I have found over the net.

Finally this blog being a virtual token of my love for books,I regularly post pictures of my latest book haul here.I am also a member of the Folio Society and it is only on this blog that I let this fact known.If the books I bought are of any interest to you,please click here.

Well,I hope you have a good time on my blog! 🙂
