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...

House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III

Basic plot

The novel begins with Massoud Behrani, a former colonel exiled from Iran after the Iranian Revolution who now works as a trash collector and convenience store clerk. Meanwhile, Kathy Nicolo, a former drug addict who is still recovering from her husband abruptly leaving her, has been wrongfully evicted from her home due to unpaid taxes the county claimed she owes. (source) When the line between right and wrong is blurred, the outcome is unpredictable.

My review (on Visual Bookshelf)

Relatively good read although the pace was at times too slow for me. The most interesting aspect to the book is probably the way it made me sway to and fro, I really couldn't decide which character was more wronged and who I should be rooting for. The ending was messy but then again sometimes messy is a good thing. Probably didn't deserve ALL the awards, but a decent book nonetheless. 3/5
