Warning: Reading Series is a Threat to your Health. It’s so Wrong but oh so Goooooood.

Here comes another listicle and it seems it’s become a biweekly Friday/Saturday habit.   My trigger this time: I recently realized that my most awaited books in the coming months are all part of one or another series.   So I wondered: why do I read series?   If you think about it it’s insanely […]

A book a day keeps boredom away. 6 reasons why everyone should read books.

My teenage daughter came back home days ago. She was appalled. “Mom can you believe it, only three kids in my class read books! How is it possible not to read books???”. I was a VERY proud mom. I must have done something right by her. But… Whys is reading so important? What are non […]

The power of covers or do you judge a book by its cover?

Now this post is inspired by a conversation I recently had with a friend I love chatting with over books and their covers. She is a big fan of shirtless men on book cover. Yes “M”, it’s YOU I’m talking about! But don’t be ashamed it should apply to more than 70% of my friends […]

When books hit you like a mack truck …

Like many of you I’m an avid reader, compulsive even. I’ve read more than 8.000 books in my whole live so far. But how many really last in my memories and why? This will be about books that’ve been either so inspirational/moving or so disappointing that I still remember years later.   ♥ On my […]
