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...

Trading up by Candace Bushnell

Basic plot

A lingerie model whose newfound fame and success has gone to her head, Janey Wilcox becomes involved in a world of too much money and too little ethics, but as unseen forces conspire to bring her down, she is forced to reexamine her values and determine just how far she is willing to go to succeed.

My review (on Visual Bookshelf)
Actually picked up the book coz it was written by the author of Sex in the city (which I have never seen) and Lipstick Jungle (which I have). It was an average read. I guess the scandalous life of a Victoria Secret supermodel is just not my cup of tea. The inner workings of New York society comes off as very sperficial and mean. Gonna stay away from chick lit for a while...

Rating: 2/5

hi adibah. welcome. thanks for visiting my blog(s). Yup, this book really wasn't my cup of tea. I'm not a huge fan of chick lit but I do try a few books and sometimes find a gem. Sorry to hear that you had to throw it away, hehe, maybe next time can just pass it to someone else.. you never know "one man's trash is another man's treasure".

Feel free to browse and if you are interested to borrow any book, do contact me.
