Why to review...

I love books. A few years ago, my father built some bookshelves for me in the cellar. They filled up quickly, spilling over into cardboard boxes and piles atop a table left over from the move. A few small bookshelves were well as more books, and as time continued onwards, I decided to log all of the books that I've read into a document. 1,318 books later, I decided to share my love of literature with others. Hopefully this blog will be read by fellow book-a-holics, and we can compare and contrast our thoughts. Books can be reviewed, analyzed, and recommended.

The book I shall start with is Life Mask by Emma Donoghue. Donoghue, Emma. (2004). Life mask. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. (Yes, I've been taught well in college. I always cite books in APA format) I finished reading it the other day, purchased from the used bookroom at the local public library. I grabbed it due to it's setting in England, the eighteenth-century to be exact. I have always had a strong fondness for history. It was exciting and enjoyable. I looked forward to picking it up to read some more.
