Q. Who are you?
A. A die-hard book-lover (not to be confused with Die Hard and books lover). Others call me bookworm, though I prefer to be called a bibliophile…
Q. So, what should we expect here?
A. My favourite genre include Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery, Thriller and Historical Fiction, with Children and YA literature thrown in for taste (for complete list, check the tags in sidebar). Don’t expect any non-fiction or technical (and confirming to another male-stereotype, poetry) book reviews here.
Q. Where can I see the list of books?
A. If you click the tag for the genre you want, you will get all the books in that genre. For complete list, check out the “Read Already” link.
Q. Where can we find the top posts in your blog?
A. Top posts will give you an idea of my posts people like, and also, my style of reviewing. “Recent Favourites” are the post most visited in last 2 day, while “Hall of Fame” contains the posts with most number of views overall. “Hall of Fame” links will be updated once a week.
Q. What is “Contest” page?
A. Currently the page contains a contest to create a header image for this blog. But in future, I will have regular book related contests, the responses to which will be published in the blog.
Q. How many ways to access this blog?
A. Use the “Bookmark” button at the end of posts to bookmark the post in social sites (Like Digg, Technorati and so on…). RSS Feed for posts and comments can be accessed at the top right, near the title of the blog.
For Email subscriptions, use the Subscribe to Lazy Habits of Thinking by Email link (found on the top of the sidebar).
Q. But why this blog, when you already have 2 blogs, and contribute to at least 2 more social ones?
A. You can find my original blog at http://randamthots.blogspot.com. But as the name suggests, although the blog is heavily dominated by my main interest, i.e. books, it contained all my random thoughts as I came up with new topics. So I have decided to dedicate this blog to just book reviews and the topics related to books, mainly literature-related tags and movie/TV serials based on books or converted to books.
Q. How can we contribute to the blog?
A. If I like anything more than reading books, it is discussing about books. So keep reading and keep commenting, so that the discussion lives on. Any suggestions on the books to read, and to improve the blog any way are more than welcome.
Q. What is your comment policy?
A. Oh well, I believe in free speech, but then, don’t overdo it. I will allow almost all comments, unless they are spam (for the first and last time, I am not interested in buying any medicines, stocks, cars or anything else).
But then, I am going to delete all those comments which are abusive, irrelevant or derogatory to me or any other commenter on this blog. That will be the first warning. Second such comment will earn you a place in the “Hall of Shame”. Third offence will earn you… well, you don’t want to know that.
Q. How can we contact you?
A. Leave comment on any post, and you will get a reply. If you want to send me a mail directly, head over to the “Contact Me” page on top.
Q. Why the links to Amazon in the posts?
A. In the interests of complete disclosure, the links have my Amazon Associate ID embedded in them (and you know what that means). But the real reason I prefer Amazon over Wikipedia or any other site is that, apart from the plot summary, you get more reviews from other readers, as well as the info about the book you really need, like price, similar books etc.
Q. Any final thoughts?
A. Be nice and remember:
