About meBook lover. Book hoarder. For life.

About my libraryBooks are my tickets to travelling this world and beyond. If you have a book in your hand, you can't possibly be bored and if you are, then get a new book. :)

As you will quickly notice, I am quite broad in my choice of books. I dabble in almost all genres with the exception of non-fiction (which I am slowly learning to enjoy). All book recommendations are appreciated and welcome.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Dr. Seuss - I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
