So, to the left is me. I’m from little old (Auckland) New Zealand, and I was living in (Munich) Germany – but now I’m living in (Bangkok) Thailand! The photo is from Munich, so it’s a couple of years old now. I’m a software developer by day and book reader/reviewer/writer by night. That’s right; I basically have no free time.
What to expect
I’m not sure about you (the visitor to this site), but from my perspective maintaining this website is a lot of work. I put a lot of effort into reviewing the books that I read. As such, please don’t ask me to take down a review if you don’t agree with it. What I will ask you do, is post a comment in the comments section about why you disagree with it. Then, if you make a good case, I’ll probably write a second review or change the review. I’m only human, so I may get things wrong from time to time. I also want any changes I make open and transparent and not behind an email exchange.
I tend to take a photo of my Kindle or the actual paperback book when I do a review. I usually do the photos in batches, so you probably won’t get one that looks like my previous pictures. If you want a copy of the image for your use, please ask for permission first. I’ve taken time out of my day to photograph the book, so it’s just friendly if you ask me first before your steal.
I don’t technically have any formal qualifications for writing (other than being a native speaker and reading a lot). You may take my reviews with a grain of salt if you believe that I need to have an MFA in Creative Writing or whatever.
I mostly do these reviews for free (to improve my writing and critical analysis). If I have received a book for free, then I usually include a comment at the bottom. So far I haven’t been paid for any of my reviews and I like to think I’m completely unbiased (haha). Take the time to read my reviews and please do comment and share if you agree or disagree. I do want to know how to improve my reviews and if I get no feedback, well, then I can’t give the best I could give. Thanks for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy my writing and reviews.
