There’s a nasty little rumour that reading certain books make you a better a person. More worldly, more intelligent! And if you read these certain books, you may eventually achieve the glorious title: well read.

I read for pleasure. I read from many genres (though I must admit I have my favourites!) and have loved almost every page. And so, I present to you what I consider being well read: finding joy in reading incessantly, regardless of a book’s genre, length or perceived status in the literary world.

My name is Kimberley. I’m a university student (Linguistics, anyone?) and I live in New Zealand. Here, I hope to post as much as possible about those books that have made me more well read than the last.
