I don`t know whether it has happened to you, too, but there were days when I browsed the internet for hours in the hope of finding a good book - in vain. By good I mean a book that I was tempted to read. I gave in search words like "women adventure" (I meant outdoors adventure and mistakenly got erotic adventures!) or "biography" (and got hundred of books I did not want to read). Sometimes I ga...
