Louise et cetera

About Louise

Avid reader and bookaholic. Tea drinker, unless I’m tired or there is fancy coffee around. Mother. Lawyer (just putting it out there). Novice writer who does not write as much as she should and wants to. Occasionally talented.IMAG3585

And I can actually complete an entire sentence when I want to.

My reading life began with having books read aloud, but once I learned to read, I haven’t been able to stop again. I have just shy of 1000 books in my home library and can rarely bare to part with any of them – even the ones I don’t like.

About Louise’s Home Library

I read the books I come across and that sound interesting. There are no genres that I categorically will not read, but I tend to always come back to historical fiction. At Louise’s Home Library I talk about the books and book-related topics that occupy my thoughts. I am in no way a professional reviewer. I don’t have a degree in English. I give you my subjective thoughts on a book and try not to spoil your potential reading experience. I have purposely not introduced a grading system because I find it a superficial way of reviewing books.

If you have a book, you would like me to review (in English or Danish) get in touch. I prefer real books, not ebooks or the like. I am old-fashioned, I know, but I also read ebook via NetGalley.

Louise’s Home Library began in 2012 and has changed a bit since. It is constantly under review as I get new ideas, become smarter, and figure out the technical stuff.

Real delivered-by-a-postman letters

Letters mean something different that emails. They are special. There is something about writing a letter by hand or on the computer and printing it out. When the words exist in print, they somehow have more weight. The words matter.

I miss letters and would like to endorse letter writing. So if you would like a letter, let me know in the comment section below, or by writing me at louisesmobil2012@gmail.com or Louise Amkaer, Moelledammen 3F, 2980 Kokkedal, Denmark.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog 🙂 My favorite genre is crime and mystery, but these days I’ve been challenging myself to step out of my comfort zone. Have been giving ‘serious literature’ a go…with mixed results so far as you will see from my reviews! Still like you, there’s no genre that I will not attempt and it pains me to dislike a book. Have just finished Amsterdam by Ian McEwan and loved it so utterly, am re-reading it right away 🙂 Will be back to check out your reviews for sure 🙂
