I read because I must. It's like breathing to me. And I love talking about books. But I'm also an Arsenal fan, a wine drinker, a music lover and weirdly obsessed with pop culture. I mostly blog about books, but sometimes about things I'm thinking or doing. When I'm not on the blog, I'm scoping deals for a professional services company, hanging out with friends, or seeing some live theater.

Book 7: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. Released in the States as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone I’m not including a link here- if you can’t find or haven’t heard of Harry Potter, well, there’s really no hope now, is there? I remember when I first entered the world of Harry Potter. […]
