Hello world!

14 July, 2009

So, this blogging business can’t be all that hard, right? So many people do it. Well, we’ll soon find out as this is all new to me.

I like books. Their existance is an integral part of my life. They calm me, teach me about life and provide me with entertainment and adventure. My TBR pile fills a bookcase and I have boxes of books stashed at my sister’s. I also freak out if I leave my house without a book in my bag.

So, having acknowledged my obsession with books, I propose to review, think about and make lists of some of the more interesting books, films, food and travel which feature in my life. This will primarily be a book blog but I look forward to seeing how it will evolve.

I read a wide variety of books with a focus on historical crime, mysteries and fantasy/speculative fiction occasionally dipping into popular, literary and classical fiction. Japanese, Sri Lankan and French fiction are also of great interest to me.

I also read non-fiction books, mainly interwar and early 20th century history, history of science and books about reading and writing.

Oh, and I write too.

Welcome to chasing bawa.
