Who? Me? *blushes* Well, I am a guy. I go by the names Jack, CJ, or Stark because they are my names. You can call me either one. Or do what I do and just change it up every now and then. I’m in my 30s- I know right, so old! I live in a town just outside of Manchester, UK. It rains a lot here.
I’m an introverted soul, a veggie, modern day hippie who believes everyone should have an equal chance at life and that no one life is worth more or less than another. I believe in performing small acts of kindness for the sake of kindness. I believe in honesty, even when that might create an uncomfortable situation. I mean what I say, and say what I mean. I try to be the best me I can be, and encourage others to be the best them they can be. Train the body, train the mind.
So, I like books I do. Sometimes I will look at a collection of symbols on a page (not too dissimilar to what you are doing now) and I get a lot of joy from this. Sometimes I have something to say about this experience, and this is where you can read such ramblings.
I read approximately 100-120 books per year – although some are really short. I really enjoy reading fantasy (especially that inspired from mythology), magical realism, contemporary fiction and thrillers, and horror. I also read a good number of graphic novels and comics. I try to read a mix of traditionally published, indie published and self published titles. I’m not concerned about what format I read books, digital or physical – it’s the story that counts for me.
★☆☆☆☆ – DNF. The only time I will not finish a book is if it is so bad that I’m hating it.
★★☆☆☆ – I finished it, but didn’t really enjoy it.
★★★☆☆ – I liked this. A good solid story but it didn’t blow me away.
★★★★☆ – This is a good story. I would recommend it to those who enjoy similar books, and may even reread it.
★★★★★ – Probably added to my favourites list. It did something for me that meant I connected greatly with it. I will definitely reread this.
★★★★★★ – 6 star book! Reserved for the greatest of all books. This book is probably even better than pizza.
Sometimes I will arrange symbols into approximately 10,000 – 20,000 groups of varying lengths in an effort to give someone else joy. I may even post some of them here for you to see.
Totes come and speak with me and such. I’m a nice guy. You can keep up with me at these places:
Peace and Love,
