Although strange but it began when I was 8 years old and suffering from measles that too in summer vacations. This is a huge tragedy for an 8 year old as one has to be confined to bed when all the kids in the neighbourhood are playing till late evening. It is also very lonely. At that time I was introduced to reading. The books formed my companion who were always there and never complained about anything. I got so engrossed that soon I began to actually imagine the characters while reading. Hence eventhough I was on bed but mentally I was either on an island with Robinson Crusoe or exploring the moors with famous five or talking with animals in jatak tales.
I have continued to be a voracious reader till now. It is great how a book can release all your worries and destress you. Today the scope of books have even increased to self help. Therefore a book always accompanies me whether at a holiday or while travelling to work. This hobby of mine has always been an asset to me. Often I find people, at times even strangers asking me which books to read or gift. To answer these questions I have started my blog where I write about the books I read. I hope I am able to help all those looking for reviews on books still there is always a scope for improvement. Any comments or inputs are always welcome. I would love to hear what you felt about the book and my review. Please feel free to put in your comments or views.
