Prologue

Reading a book is more than seeing a collection of words on a page, and finishing a book is more than turning the final page and starting on the first of a new one. Good novels stay with us, and each book makes us see world in a slightly different way. And that’s why I started this blog: books make us tick, they make us think, and they make us, well, us. And I want to tell you all about them.

The Open Book is here for those who have never truly finished reading. This is a blog for the curious ones, who always want to find out all the details and the subtleties of their favourite novels. This blog is for those who cannot help but wonder at the inventiveness of literature.

Browse, read, and be inspired too… Also, make sure to follow me if you want to receive a notification when I’ve written a new post!
