Who am I? My name is Daniel, as you could probably tell. I’m currently a university student in Australia, and have loved reading for many years. I decided to start this blog after being inspired by other blogs, and I thought I’d give blogging a go, little did I know I’d still be going nearly 3 years on, and hundreds of posts later!
So what exactly is this blog about? This blog started by reading and reviewing books on a chapter-by-chapter basis, and with daily posts, back in October 2011. It was a wonderful experience covering Cloudstreet by Tim Winton, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, JK Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy and The Cuckoo’s Calling, plus all six books of The Obernewtyn Chronicles by Isobelle Carmody (with the seventh and final still to be published). As well as the classic The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
However, time is at a premium these days, so I have largely swapped to a weekly single-review format, covering whatever I’ve been reading at the time, all of which you can find here. I do hope to cover more books in a chapter-by-chapter basis in the future though.
In addition to reviews, I also publish weekly a post about a bookish topic, under Bookish Topic Tuesday.
I, like most bibliophiles have a very extensive to read list, but I’m always up for suggestions, so leave them below, or on any of my posts.
Contact! I am on Twitter, where I tweet when my latest posts are up, and other general book stuff. I am [at]danielisreading. You can also take a look at my Goodreads profile (link on the side) where you can keep up to date with my progress of not only the books I review here, but my other general reading. You’ll also find my reviews and ratings of all the books I have (more recently) read, and which books I am planning to read in the future! Plus I am on Facebook.
If you would like to email me for any reason, you can at danielisreading [at] gmail.com

I would thank all of the authors and contributors who work on all of the books that I read, because without them, there would be nothing to read, and that would be sad. They all do an amazing job! Can’t forget the designers and artists who create the front covers, they are frequently stunning! And of course, you, who are reading this blog, need to be thanked as well, because your views and comments are what makes this worthwhile!
