Hello! 👋🏼

Welcome to Bookaholics Anonymous, a website that's all about books. I'm Carol and as you would expect me to be, a book collector, reader, admirer of beautiful book covers, and live a rather bookish life.

The name Bookaholics Anonymous might give one the impression that it's about quitting the book addiction. Quite the opposite - this website supports Bookaholics to be who they are, whether anonymously or revealing their authentic self, to encourage more people to fall in love with books.

In the blog section, I share pretty much anything and everything book related, from book reviews, book shopping, e-readers, shelf and library maintenance, book care, etc.

As much as this website serves me as a platform to unleash all my bookish love, I hope it serves you in some ways too. Happy visiting and reading. Stay bookish!

These are some of the reasons that prompted Carol Low to start her book rental service, called simply “The Joy of Books”, after she rekindled her long-abandoned love of reading during the long lockdowns brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.
