Not Quite For Me, But It's A Good Product
Review of Harry Potter Colouring Book - Warner Brothers by CGholy

Advantages: Makes a nice gift for fans.
Disadvantages: It's not for me.

Introduction Celebrating 20 years since Harry Potter was first released, I thought of writing a series of Harry Potter product reviews. It's amazing how it still holds the test of time and it's everywhere despite turning 20 years old. I think this ... Read review

Review of A Simple Story - Elizabeth Inchbald by CGholy

Advantages: Witty writing and compelling characters.

Life-Changing! You just can't read it only once
Review of How to Win Friends and Influence People - Dale Carnegie by BenjaminWrites

Advantages: pleasant to read, easy to understand, easy to apply, very close to reality
Disadvantages: packed with good advice - need to read it more than once to take everything in

After hearing about this book again and again, I finally decided to read it. That was one of the best decisions I made this year. To be honest, I don't like the title. It's just bad. The book is not really about "winning friends" or "influencing people" ... Read review
