Reading

Is it worth to read bad writing?

I used to think reading wasn’t for me but, then for the first time, I found something worth reading. Isabel Allende and Banana Yoshimoto are two of my favourite writers.

I am passionate about queer writing, sci-fi and design books. I usually read while travelling or before going to bed.

Why do you read?

All books from A to Z

I have never really kept track of what I read but some key books have probably influenced me more than others.

I am going to add the most important books I have read since my childhood, perhaps you have also read some of my favourite books.
