Over the last three years I have been getting some of the same questions so I figured I would put together a BookOfCinz FAQ. These questions ranges from Book Recommendations, book club, the BOC library, the shelf along with reading tips. I hope this document gives you the answer you are looking for.
1. Where do you find the time to read?
I must first say I am single without a child so that frees me up to read a lot. Also I really enjoy reading. This blog post details how I find the time to read. Read more here.
2. How do you read so much?
Over the years I have read 100 books or more. This generally is mind blowing but it can be done. Two years ago I read 200 books and in a blog post I detail how I did it. Read more here.
3. How do I join the BookOfCinz Book Club?
The Book Club is open to all. We meet monthly locally, in person and online for all the international readers. Once you sign up you will receive an email with all the information about Book Club. To find out all about the Book Club, visit here.

The BookOfCinz Library is open to persons living in Trinidad. You get access to books from my Library for you to read in a month and return. If you are interested in joining the BookOfCinz Library, visit here.
5. What is Read Caribbean about?
The BookOfCinz platform was created to bring awareness to Caribbean writers and their work. June is celebrated as Caribbean Heritage Month and it is the month we Read Caribbean. If you are looking for more information on Read Caribbean, visit here.

Whenever I get asked for Read Caribbean recommendations I always start with a short story collection. I think these offer a great introduction to anyone looking to Read Caribbean. Start reading Caribbean now.
