Hi! I'm Dean. Maybe you know me as Round2Gaming. Maybe you don't know me at all. Either way - that's okay! This site is about books, not me. But if you're interested in learning a bit more, then you're in the right place!  


I'm a lifelong collector of video games and gaming memorabilia. Gaming literature has always been a passion of mine; reading about the history, development and universes of all the worlds I grew up loving.  Through the Covid pandemic, I've re-discovered my love of sitting down with a book and flipping through its pages, so I wanted to create a website wholly dedicated to books about games. One where fellow gamers like you could come and discover literature about a franchise you enjoy, a creator you love, or even a topic you're looking to do a video on.

There's no denying this is a niche corner of the internet. And I have no idea how the site will evolve. But if you're here, then "Thank You". And if you enjoy what you see, then that's enough for me. I'd love to hear from you, so come join The Discord, say "Hi" on X or Mastodon or shoot me an email at
