I love to read. I love to share. I would love to share my passion for reading with all of you.


It's a very simple concept. I have a book and I want to share it with you. Just follow these simple steps.

  • #Browse through my collection of books. For tips on how to find a book click here.
  • #Choose one you like. I have provided a plot summary and review for each book to help you.
  • #Leave a comment under that particular post ("I want to borrow this book" or something similar).
  • #Contact me at and leave your name and mailing address.
  • #I will mail the book to you and you can read it.


In order to promote reading to others too please do these simple steps.

  • #Tell all your book loving friends.
  • #You may keep the book for 2 weeks (upon recieving it- so notify me when it arrives safely- extensions are negotiable).
  • #After that, please mail it to the next person requesting the book (contact me to get their address). If nobody else has requested the book, simply mail it back to me.

  • Hmm.. I wonder if this crazy idea will actually work...

The Charlemange Pursuit by Steve Berry

Basic plot

The story follows Cotton Malone trying to find out the details of his father's death, Forrest Malone, a Navy Officer who died in a submarine in 1971. Also trying to find out that sub's fate are German twins, Cristl Falk and Dorothea Lindauer,whose father was on the same submarine. Also involved is ambitious Admiral Langford Ramsey, who tries to hide his involvement with a second sub sent to find Forest Malone and his crew. Stephanie Nelle, Malone's ex-boss and Edwin Davis (Deputy National Security Advisor) also become involved, searching for Charlie Smith, a killer hired by Ramsey to eradicate any links to him.

All plots are connected to an ancient Antarctic civilization (known as Civilization One) which taught Charlemagne and his chronicler Einhard advanced technology thought to have been invented by modern humans. This is what the two submarines were searching for.

My review (on Visual Bookshelf)
Finally! I finished it. Probably took me the longest time ever, since I have been swamped lately. The plot is complex and the main characters took a while to grow on me, and intermittent reading didn't help, but overall it was a good book. I enjoyed the last few chapters alot. However, for this genre I still prefer Dan Brown. 3/5
