Hello, my name is Samantha James. The Lonely Reader is a blog centered around my short stories, book reviews, and poetry. We will also post classical literature from some of the most talented writers throughout time. I am a very passionate reader. One of the hardest things for me to describe is why I love books. I rarely know where to begin because I have such a deep love for them. This is where the dilemma happens… there is not one thing or aspect I do not enjoy and love about reading.
