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 || The curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon


Chrisptopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the colour yellow.
Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, fifteen-year-old Christopher is autistic and everyday interactions have little meaning for him. He lives on patterns, rules, and a diagram kept in his pocket. Then one day, a neighbour's dog, Wellington is killed and his carefully constructed universe is threatened. Christopher sets out to solve the murder in the style of his favourite (logical) detective, Sherlock Holmes. What follows makes for a novel that is deeply funny, poignant, and fascinating in its portrayal of a person whose curse and blessing are a mind that perceives the world entirely literally.

It was 7 minutes after midnight. -1st line

The Cover:

The cover is very simple, orange in colour and has the shape of an upside down dog in the centre. A curious cover for a curious book. Clever!

The Story:

This book actually belongs to Lydia  who has been kind enough to lend me this book as part of her book swap project. This book won a Whitbread Award. As usual she picked it out for me, so far I am enjoying it. Perhaps not a book I would have picked out on my own, am thankful that swapping books have made me more open to different genres.

Advanced rating: 4/5

First impression was initially thought of by CJ on his blog Coffee N Crackers.
