Awesome stuff!

Love the genre of books you are into – and you like to ask if you’d fancy the opportunity of reviewing any of those; or other books on our site?

We think you’re doing a great job and would be happy to post your book reviews on our site. This will also help to drive huge unique visitors to your blog; and hopefully subscribe to your RSS Feed.

Please leave a comment on our blog if you’re interested.


yes, Helen, I would love to review books on your site. I am not hot on navigating the internet and someone has to show me what is RSS Feed; I write, save on a UBS and then publish. Would you like me to publish what I have already published on Frankly, I would rather you take the initiative and publish them for me in the time being and then I will publish new stuff. I usually need someone to take me by the hand for the first steps and then let me loose.
I like to remind you that I published many other current books but they are included as articles in my category “finance/politics” because I had no time to save them as book reviews. Keep your comments coming. Check my About. I should update my about soon. Thanks.

Hi Helen
Thanks for your refreshing comments on my series of book reviews.
Maybe the versality of my reviews stems first, from my ability to read
and write in three languages English (third language but that I use
almost exclusively after living in the USA for over 20 years), French,
and Arabic; and second because I am interested in my topics and don’t
mind controversial issues.
I read hard copy books and if you want me to review books then we have
got to find a way to securing the hard copies. We have no publishers
for the English language in Lebanon and that is why I failed to
publish any.
I have posted about 800 articles, essays, book reviews, novels and
even my autobiography and would like to be connected with an
interested editor or a publisher.
Keep your comments coming.
