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: Swapping Lives by Jane Green

Blurb: What if a successful, single Londoner and a comfortable, Conneticut mother of two were to walk in each other's shoes for a month? Vicky Townsend is the director of Poise! magazine and lives a glamorous London life. She has everything she wants- except marriage, children and a house in the country. Amber Winslow has a stone mansion in Conneticut, two kids, and a nanny, but she hasn't found the fulfillment she had expected from being a wife and a mother. When she spots an intriguing contest in Poise!, Amber never expects to be chosen. 

This is not a straightforward story of romance. - 1st line.

The cover: The cover is very simple and endearing. It reminds me of a young girl's secret journal or a sweet bookmark pattern. Pretty.

The Story: I actually found this book on my desk last January. My roomie Dr Mali had bought it for me from BookExcess as a birthday present. So sweet. I'm not a huge chick lit fan (in fact I mostly stay away from the genre) but after reading the first chapter, I am hopeful that this will turn out to be a decent read. It actually reminds me of that movie, The Holiday starring Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz. 

Advanced star rating: 3/5
