It seems that everywhere we turn there are advertisements for ‘must-read’ ebooks; in newspapers, magazines, stores and in charts for download ebooks. But how do you know that you will enjoy them just because everyone else does? Perhaps you are looking for a book that isn’t on a best-seller or must-read list, but you’d rather find a lesser well-known book or some quirky book found in the far back corner of the library. If that is the case, here I have for you a few recommendations of ebooks that I found recently and highly enjoyed reading.
I Will Survive ebook by Leow Yangfu.
If you are interested in real life stories and memoires or you are gay, lesbian or transgender, then this book may be of interest to you. It is a powerful insight into the LGBT community in Singapore and also offers resources so that people who are dealing with common issues can seek help and guidance. When you read this you become enamoured with the people and their stories; you will feel you personally have experienced the fear, terror, losses and struggles that these amazing people face in their day-to-day life. The honesty that pours from this book is quite incredible and fills you with raw emotion. The author has worked with social services in Singapore, volunteered for a HIV/AIDs centre in Singapore and currently works on a voluntary basis for a welfare organisation for the homeless in Singapore, after working in London for a brief time. All profits from this book go towards Oogachaga; a counselling and support service for the LGBT communities.
