I created a blog post earlier inviting readers to say what they are reading right now, but there are no replies there. So this page of my website is to provide a link to that post, so that if you who are reading this page, am curious about what I am reading right now, you can go to that post, to see what I am up to! Sometimes I read tangentially and by that, I mean I have several works on the “go” at the same time, to read. For example, at the precise moment of writing up this page (What I am Reading Now) I am still reading a book written by Steve Waugh (a former Australian cricketer) and I am also, at times, putting that book down, and reading an e-book titled “The Australian Bee-keeping Manual”.
If you know me well (e.g. by visiting my many other blogs, not hard to discover these), you will know that I am interested in animals. Well, I’m fascinated by honey bees so when I found a book about keeping bees in Australia, I bought …… the Kindle edition. It took me some time to work out what having a Kindle only version means to me personally, and of course when I finish reading this Kindle book, I will write a review of the book.
At least if anyone looks at my blog post “What are you Reading right now?” to tune into what I myself am reading at the moment, it will give you an indication of what book review I will be posting soon. I love reading, especially non-fiction and am happy to receive free books from new (or not so new) authors, to read (in my own good time) and to write a Book Review, which of course, I will post here on my own site Book Reviewers International. I may be able to post the review on Amazon, depending upon whether Amazon will allow me to. If you want me to post my review on Goodreads, you will have to allow time for me to do that, after first posting the Book Review on my own site (this site you are reading now, “Book Reviewers International”).
Authors can contact me at the email below, and please keep in mind that I live in Australia, and I work part-time, so reading and reviewing your book would have to be scheduled.
The topics that I am most interested in are:
Self-help (to be more precise – along the lines of Dale Carnegie’s “How to make Friends and influence people”, how to set boundaries, self-care while helping others, “New Age” concepts, spiritual information like works by Doreen Virtue and Louise Hay – nothing creepy or weird)
Science (e.g. the cosmos, scientific discoveries and contributions by women, sustainable living, helping small communities, weather, reciprocal economies)
Mathematics – Vedic mathematics, Cuseinare rods, etc. BUT please allow a long time for me to read and review these type of books (the reason being I may not want to read it when you offer it to me, and I definitely have to be in the “right zone” and have the TIME to read these sort of books, with the aim of writing a decent review).
Autobiographies – Yes, even if you are not Madonna or a Prime Minister or a celebrity, if you know about an autobiography of an interesting person who engaged in one of the areas above, I could perhaps schedule time to read it.
Crystals – books about crystal healing, use of crystals, crystal properties, etc.
Cultural sociology – how communities developed and why groups are like what they are, toward others.
The contribution of women to all facets of Society – books like “Hidden Figures”
I mainly read non-fiction so –
If you are looking for a Book Reviewer of NON-FICTION
try contacting me.
I am offering this service FREE although if you do want me to read and review your book, you will probably have to send or email me a review copy of your book. Plus, my review of your book will, of course, take …… time. If you want to know, what I am reading right at the moment you are looking at this page, please click on the blue link below.
