Words leave imprints in your mind like footprints in the sand...

The book blog is a collection of thoughts and bookish musings about anything and everything to do with books. Book worms are invited to send an article or join us in a chat and we’d love to meet fellow booktrailers and post your stories here. This is the page for book giveaways, literary travel itineraries and bookish banter.

A mix of thoughts, opinions, literary travel tales to read when you’re deciding where to travel to next. A sort of literary departure lounge if you like!
