Hi fellow book lovers,
I developed a passion for reading from a young age. From Austen to Dickens, Dahl to Brown, I love transporting myself into the world of books. In all my years reading, I have come across a wide range of books that I love so much, that I delve into their fantastical writings, not once, not twice but at least three times a year. However as a book reader I’m finding it harder and harder in this day and age to hold conversations with people regarding books. When our society is faced with such wondrous technology like ipads and xboxes, is it any wonder that the number of people reading has dwindled? Of my group of friends, only one or two others can hold an intelligent conversation with me regarding literature, and together we read the same books in hopes of being able to review them and share our enjoyment of key moments, any similarities or disputes in our opinions. It is for this reason that I decided to create this blog, for the need to find other avid readers who enjoy the exciting worlds books bring us. I want this blog to be a collection of my reviews of books I’ve read and hopefully garner others opinions on the same or new books in order to create an online community of avid readers.
I await your comments/opinions and reviews with excitement,
The Avid Reader. 🙂
