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...

First impression: Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffeneger

This is my first First Impression entry, thanks to my book friend CJ (Coffee N Crackers). What a great idea!

Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

The blurb says: 

Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers - normal at least, for identical 'mirror twins' who have no interest in colege or jobs or possibly anything outside their cosy suburban home. But everything changes when they recieve notice that an aunt whom they didn't know existed has died and left them her flat in an apartment block overlooking Highgate Cemetery in London.....

1st line: 

Elspeth died while Robert was standing in front of a vending machine watching tea shoot into a small plastic cup.

The cover: 

The cover is awesome. With a haunting feel and the 2 twins as if caught in the act of hiding some dark secret.

The story

So far everything is a bit hazy (I've only read 3 chapters), but someone is dead and someone has been left behind. The characters seem to be very well thought out. I am still trying to get a feel of the book.

Advanced star rating: 

I am guessing that this will be a 3-4 star book.

Thanks CJ, this was fun!
