Hi

This post is to introduce the NottsReader blog to the world, the aim this little part of the internet is to discuss the thoughts and opinions of one reader from Nottinghamshire on how reading has an impact on his life.

The blog will contain  reviews of books I have read both for the first time and rereads (yes I do read books more than once), there will always be a mention to say I have already read the book before.

In addition there will discussions on issues affecting the book world, including the methods we use for reading and news around the book world. There will also be more personal post like, how I started getting into reading and the books that have paid a major part of my life.

I have already started working on my next blog which will be about about the great eBook, real book, and audio book debate.

Thanks for reading and looking forward to hearing your thoughts
