Do you love reading? Are you a so-called bookworm, or are you walking around secretly wanting to become one? Perhaps you already have a favourite genre, or perhaps you like all of them? Are you looking for new recommendations, or do you just want a different take on things you’ve already read? Either way, you’ve come to the right place!
My name is Christian and I’m the founder and editor of Literature & Stuff, but first and foremost an avid reader passionate about almost every kind of book there is. Also, I have a probably equal amount of affection towards Marvel comics. What better reason could there possibly be to launch a blog? Especially one about books!
Literature & Stuff aims to widen your literary horizon and make you discover books that you never thought you would on your own. Through book reviews, recommendations and other exciting and hopefully fun features, I hope to accomplish my mission and make a bookworm out of you, as well.
Do I have you hooked? If so, you should definitely join me on my journey towards a vast amount of literary discoveries! Or are you still a little dubious (which, from a completely objective standpoint, I don’t see why you should be)? Fear not! If you are not convinced this far, read on for a more detailed description of what Literature & Stuff will bring you and who I am. This should change your mind.
What do you get?
So, first things first, what is this blog really about? Well, you guessed it: It’s about books!
Besides the regular book review, Literature & Stuff will also bring you articles on my personal recommendations, reading lists and other literary features.
Reviewing books is something almost everyone has been forced to do in school and to most it was probably never the most fun thing to do. I, however, like to express my opinion and thoughts on books I have read, and I believe it is a great way to open up discussions on literature and finding and giving recommendations on new books to read.
One of the first book reading challenges I want to document and share with you is the completion of Tai Lopez’ Top Book Recommendations, a reading list of 195 books featuring all sorts of genres, mostly non-fiction. The number one reading challenge on my bucket list with books of fiction is the BBC Big Read, a collection of 100 titles voted for by the British nation. Perhaps, you would like to join me on my quest to completing one of these lists or even both of them?
Being what some people would denote a nerd within the world of Marvel Comics, I both love to read and collect comic books, so obviously, the blog will also headline posts about this topic.
Who am I?
I am a book-loving Dane (meaning from Denmark, if you’re wondering) in his late 20’s always looking for something new to read. My passion for books has more or less been a constant part of me and my life. In the small grades of school, I spent a lot of time in the school library, searching for books to read on my own besides the mandatory (and mostly boring) books we were forced to read in class. Now, every bookstore I fall upon is subject to thorough scrutinization, and I rarely leave one without having bought something.
In my teenage years and early 20’s, I was very narrow-minded when it came to picking a genre to read. I mostly chose crime stories and fantasy novels. Now, I read practically everything. Crime, fantasy, historical fiction, biographies, books on finance and self-development, business books, comic books. You name it.
The only challenge now is having the time to read all the books I want. Juggling a full-time job and a new kind of family life with a newborn child, it’s not always easy to find the amount of time I’d like to devote to reading books. I am still trying to figure this out, and hopefully one day, I will, but in the meantime, good advice is always welcome.
That was a little bit about me and my literary journey thus far in life. I would love to hear yours. What do you love to read? What could you hope to be getting from this site?
