This site is for my book reviews. I read around six books a month and try to review each book I read.
In Tbilisi, Georgia finding books in English is easy but finding specific books in English is difficult. So my reading is an eclectic mix of what I find to read here. I can also read in French and hope someday son to be able to read books in Georgian, too.
Most of the books I rate out of five (like Goodreads). Five is excellent, four is good, three is okay, anything less will be unusual as I would tend to abandon books I don’t like.
Daniel Pennac the French writer, teacher and reader outlined the rights of the reader in his book “Comme un Roman” (Like a Novel).
1. The right to read.
2. The right to skip. You don’t have to read every line.
3. The right not to finish a book.
4. The right to read it again.
5. The right to read anything.
6. The right to mistake a book for real life. (Bovaryism)
7. The right to read anywhere.
8. The right to dip in.
9. The right to read out loud.
10. The right to be quiet and not discuss the book with anyone. (Too many fledgling readers are put off the magic of reading by schools demanding they discuss what they have read.)
