Book Review: The Imperfectionists

#MyThoughts: Sometimes, it's good too take a chance with books and authors unheard of. As a reader, I'm quite eccentric. If I'm trying an author for the first time, I check out their quotes. Well, and if the quotes stick with... Continue Reading →

The First Book I Read

The love for reading is a welcome inheritance from my father. I couldn’t have had it any other way. I wouldn’t have! I can hardly recall when I began reading books by myself. But what I do remember is that... Continue Reading →

What writing takes…

I love to read. Not because I am a writer. But because there is no better teacher. Reading always gives me new ways to write. Opens new windows with better perspectives. Last week I finished reading Jhumpa Lahiri's latest book 'In... Continue Reading →
