I am a solicitor, practising now for 10 years whose reading fare consists mainly of newspapers and judgment headnotes in law reports. I used to read a lot as a child but somehow lost that enjoyment with the advent of laser discs, vcds and now dvds. This is both my attempt to reclaim the joy of reading and a challenge to myself to read more books from different genres and styles, and hopefully one day be able to write one myself.

So, The Reading Monk is primarily a blog about my love affair with books, where I review books that I’ve read and discuss other topics that may be of interest to me or my readers. Your ideas and comments are most welcome and I hope you will spend a few minutes to share them with me and others who frequent here.

You may also contact me directly through my email.
