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 Pact by Jodi Picoult

Basic plot

Two teenage lovers who are in what appears to be a suicide pact gone wrong. The boy survives, the girl dies and the aftermath devastates two families who have essentially been "extended family" for the last 18 years. The setting is both present day and past which is a feature we see in many of Picoults books-something that sets her writing style apart. (source)

My review (on Visual Bookshelf)
A haunting book. A beautiful and tragic love story. Must read. 4.5/5

I want to borrow the book. But I don't have a blog and I don't have a Facebook account either. So I can't fulfill your request to promote this blog by reviewing the book. Can I still borrow this book? TQ

Kartini: sure, after you read the book, just write me a short note on whether or not you enjoyed it and why. I will publish your review on my blog if you don't mind. (That way others can benefit from the review). Please send me your mailing address at my e-mail (insyaAllah I will mail it to you next week).

PS: You can just tell your friends who are book lovers problem.
