Ignorant of a definition of ‘the classics’, and ignorant toward literature in general, I pledged to myself that I would read all the books that are so. My pledge soon deteriorated and I gave in to reading mostly books recommended by friends, family and acquaintances – but rarely ‘new’ books. I thought I would write what I think about the books as I read them and keep them here, on the blog.

I also subscribe to and read Granta Magazine (http://www.granta.com/) so will try to write what I think of those short pieces too.
