    hi all
    i am crazy about books - or i think all written prose is more accurate .
    i like to read fiction , classics , essays , autobiographies , religious commentaries , dramas, magazines , short stories - in short everything.
    i've been like this since class 5 when we were introduced to the library for the first time.
    you'll never find me without some reading material within reach of me.

    Hi ,

    I used to read a lot of books before marriage and eventually it got less. Hope I can get hold of some of them mentioned here and add more to my collection.

    Thanks,
    Askk

    Hi,

    I have been reading short fictional stories that came in regional newspapers since childhood. I have read plays/novels/science from local library when i was a kid. Honestly, I don't remember the things i have read during childhood.

    Since then, i have read few things here and there. I was not a serious reader. But lately, i have been reading a lot.

    What brought me back to reading? :
    I picked up a book to kill time when i was flying alone. The book is called "Still Alice" by Lisa Genova. I had very hard time putting the book down. I finished that one. Now i am reading another book called "love anthony" by the same author.

    The genres that i like to read are: psychology fiction and Historical romance. Pride and Prejudice is my all time favorite. I saw you have the link for it here. Thanks for sharing it. I might read it again

    Thanks for reading

    -Desichica

    Hi ILs,

    I am bookworm and I also review books on my blog.
    I love to read all sorts of books but self-help and romance are my favorite genres.
    Hope to connect with fellow readers.

    Thank you!
