Last year I only read around 6 paperbacks, other than theory laden textbooks I used as references in class, magazines and daily papers. Cliché as it may seem but I made a promise to myself that at the turn of 2011 I should read more, well, I’m a bit too slow but I’m keeping up with my target.

So far I’m halfway with Yasunari Kawabata’s - The Master of Go, my third this year. I downloaded a lot of audio books though but I really prefer the tangible books, it’s a habit of mine to re-read phrases and does some personal reflections other than sniffing the scent of a book which I love most.

Reality is that some good reads are a bit pricey, I’m actually planning to sign-up with Booksfree for my reading prospects, as it would save me much other than cutting time going to the bookstore.

If you haven’t heard about it yet, it’s a book resource online where you can borrow books, without the hassle of running your fingers over dusty hardbacks at the library. All you have to do is sign-up, select your plan, browse on their thousands of paper backs, children’s books, audio books and wait till it will be delivered right at your doorstep for free. You can also receive notices of your favorite author’s new releases.

For those who wanted more out of their time, Netflix for Books can be the decisive answer to your reading needs.
