Review: Notes from a Big Country

Notes from a Big Country Notes from a Big Country by Bill Bryson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am apparently going through a reading slump for a few months now but I flew through this book probably because it's a Bryson book or probably because my computer not working while it's waiting for a part so that's that but all I know that I read through this book unlike any other book this year or few months in the last year. It's also possible it's due to the format that is a collection of his weekly articles in a magazine so maybe that's but I have already picked the book in the same format based on the UK, so excuse me while I get lost in the travel experience and thoughts about the UK circa 1995 but I somehow think that I would still find it relevant. So then let's all just Keep on Reading.

People who don't read generally ask me my reasons for reading. Simply put I just love reading and so to that end I have made it my motto to just Keep on Reading. I love to read everything except for Self Help books but even those once in a while. I read almost all the genres but YA, Fantasy, Biographies are the most. My favorite series is, of course, Harry Potter but then there are many more books that I just adore. I have bookcases filled with books which are waiting to be read so can't stay and spend more time in this review, so remember I loved reading this and love reading more, you should also read what you love and then just Keep on Reading.

Review: Stephen Fry's Victorian Secrets

Stephen Fry's Victorian Secrets Stephen Fry's Victorian Secrets by John Woolf
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This free series on Audible was a joy to listen to and I immensely enjoyed my journey to the 1800s of the UK. We Indians were of course supplier of all the wealth to the Britishers at the time but well that's the tale for other times. This is not a narration of a book but rather 12 episodes with music and acting and recreation of the Victorian times to focus on 12 juicy details not discussed normally. Like I said I loved to listen to the episodes and would definitely jump to enjoy the other free series I had added. After all who doesn't love the free stuff? So if you have an Audible subscription then it's a no-brainer to add this and more free series to your library I am sure you would also enjoy the hilarious and funny narration not only from Sir Stephen Fry but also the other narrators. So onto the next one then gotta Keep on Reading.
