I love reading. As simple as that. =)

And like all the other beautiful things in life, readings should be shared! So if you are looking for a read, please do feel free to browse through the list of books I would like to recommend, from many of the books that I have read so far!

This list will continue to grow, as long as I live, as long as I read! =D
