- Synopsis of the Book by Carla Madden.
Now, this was a book that made my Sunday today. A Brilliant book.
I got to lay my hands on this book was simply because when I downloaded the Android app for Kobo ebook reader, I was gifted with this book as a complement. From there on, it has been one continuous addictive journey of book reading. Kobo is psychologically designed to incentivize your reading and motivate you into doing more and more of reading. I have been a loyal Aldiko user so far, and if Kobo has convinced me to switch over, it is definitely some serious success.
Please do read it. If you have any plans of maturing into an adult, seasoned and responsible Internet user within your life-span, go for it.
Here is a set of first thirteen points from the Book...
