On the back cover

When I’ve started this blog I sat and thought on what I want to do and achieve here. Mainly it was my passion for reading and my try to push this passion a little farther. I never pictured myself as a writer but I always had an opinion about my readings and this blog gave me the opportunity to put them in order and make them reviews (I took the example of the blogs I read). It is also the unique feeling of being read and although I’m not a writer it is good to know that my work is read. Another decisive factor was the opportunity of receiving free books. Don’t get me wrong, I buy a load of books (more than I can read), but this is another unique feeling and also the sense that my work is rewarded.

What never crossed my mind was that someday a part of one of my reviews will end up as blurb on the back of a novel. With all my sincerity I didn’t know this thing it was possible. But when Bill Hussey told me that a part of my review for his novel, “Through A Glass, Darkly”, had made his back cover I was not only surprised, but also thrilled. I know that it isn’t much, I know that it is not a very elaborate phrase, but still, I’m overjoyed. I don’t know how long this blog will run, I don’t know if it will happen again, but besides the great things that I achieved here (friends, readers, books) this one is another achievement made by my blog that I will hold dear.

I want to thank Bill Hussey for letting me know about this blurb and for the photo of the back cover.
