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...

Reclaim your Heart by Yasmin Mogahed

This book is a compilation of Yasmin Mogahed's thoughts and insights on her journey towards reclaiming her heart. I have always shied away from non-fiction, especially self-help/motivational books. Finding most of the supposed "pearls of wisdom" between the pages too simplistic and at times unrealistic, I developed a wary distaste for successful "know-it-all" strangers that were determined to make me happier, richer or more motivated. This book, however, was different. I had been following Yasmin's Facebook and Twitter, and her honest, simple reflections on life often struck a chord with me. So I decided to give this book a chance. And Alhamdulillah, I am glad I did. She manages to inspire, soothe and evoke strong emotions in one fell swoop. Her musings are simple and very relatable. Her problems were my problems, her questions were my questions too. Above all this, the answers that she offered were not her own. The answers, were what we have already been told in the Quran and hadith. What Yasmin does best is give words to our internal worries, conflicts, fears, even the ones we never knew we had and reminds us of what Allah has already prescribed the solution for us. Like a friendly traffic policewoman redirecting the congestion of thoughts and unease that we are experiencing, she waves us on our way in the right direction, to reach our final goal. To be closer to our Creator.

A quote I liked from the book 

(Usually I would pick one line that I liked. In this book it is almost impossible to choose but I will try)

Once in a while, people enter your life that you love- not for what they give you- but for what they are.
