Hi to all,

Heard about the site from my sister and was told that I can earn doing something that I love - reading, so here I am.

I love reading about topics like love and romance, mystery, sci_fi, historical, adventure, self help, etc....

I also love reading about technology and science.

Growing up full of curiosity, I started reading encyclopedias (back when the web is not yet a thing :D). I was hooked on mythology ever since I saw Clash of the Titans and later read mysteries like Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes and the Bourne series. I read romance books from Mills and Boone especially those written by Carole Mortimer and other full blown romance novels.

I prefer reading the summary or description at the back of paperbacks before I commit to reading the book. Even with the prevalence of the internet and online searches, I abstain from reading reviews about the book I am reading because I want to form my own opinion.

Reading helped me a lot as it improved my vocabulary, grammar and my imagination and focus.

Hi,

Thank you for sharing your story.

Your sister is right. This is a site for book lovers. Thus, you are in the right place if books make your day. There are review opportunities here indeed. Your initial review will be unpaid, but there are paid opportunities after you've done the right things right the first time.

If you'd check out the helpful information that Gali gave, you'd be off to a good start.

Welcome to the club! All the best. :tiphat:
