Extended Profile

I was brought up by an enlightened father. I guess my dad's family has always been readers; after all, I remember that my aunts had many books in their house and later on, during the Harry Potter craze, they also eagerly awaited and similarly gobbled book after book of the series. I guess books also give me the comfort that people sometimes can't give. Growing up, well, different from others made me seek out things that would help me survive life. Like Bastian of "The Neverending Story", I found solace in books early on in my life. Later, I learned to use what I got from books to help me in almost every decision in my life. My idea of a perfect time is having coffee or tea with friends on a glorious day and reading a book while drinking our coffee or tea. Now that's magical!

1. James Rollins
2. Stephen King
3. Madelein L'Engle
