I’ve always been fascinated by the Holocaust and life in concentration camps. When I first came across an East Asian country that’s isolated and is a threat to the region, I was gripped and fascinated.

I was looking for some easy reading after a very dramatic March and April, and I found Bobbie Jean Brown’s “Dirty Rocker Boys” on one of my favorite eBook apps on the Android. I’ve always preferred nonfiction to fiction, and this seemed like the perfect book to curl up to. I was able to make […]

Facebook: It could make you or break you. Facebook, in my perspective, pretty much picked up the pieces left in Friendster and MySpace’s wake. But more than becoming the social networking site of the day, Facebook has managed to practically take over the world, in a few years’ time. No, it didn’t become the “King […]
