About


Hi, my name is Islam Ahmed and I'm the creator of booksandtype. I live in New Jersey (don't you dare belch!), but my dream has always been to live in New York City. I'm currently in my junior year of college. I'm double-majoring in psychology and sociology, so if I spring some really deep thoughts or ideas on you, don't be alarmed. I plan to attend graduate school and get my Ph.D in neuroscience after I do my time as an undergraduate. I enjoy reading (obviously), blogging, taking pretty pictures, going to the movies, drinking coffee, working as a research assistant, etc.

I initiated this blog in June 2015, and originally, I was using the Weebly platform, but then, I moved here for a better blogging experience and more freedom. Then abooksblog, this blog was solely dedicated to the review of books and such, but I thought it was too dull and so once, tumblr piqued my interest in typography, AND LO AND BEHOLD, BOOKSANDTYPE WAS BORN. So, now, in additon to book reviews, and open letters, I publish posts about relatively diverse topics without straying too much from the original purpose of this blog.



My Reviews


Okay, disclaimer: the reviews I write aren't particularly formal. I try to make them so, but I end up getting carried away and write just about whatever comes to mind. I warn you, I don't sugarcoat. I'm not very nice when it comes to my reviews. if I don't like a book, I'll say so. I might feel guilty about it after the fact, but it's my duty as a professional reader and reviewer to convey my thoughts on books as they are, unfiltered and unmodified.
