Sometimes a poet, sometimes and engineer, always a traveller…
A few things:
- I have been an avid reader since childhood. Over the past 16 years (that’s how long ago I started listing the books I read), I’ve steadily managed to read a book every ten days. That’s 36 books a year, about 600 books till date. But there have been many times when I’m asked to recommend and I fail, because I don’t remember plots in great detail.
- Feeling. Every time I finish a book I associate it with a feeling. Years later, that is all that remains. I have a hard time explaining to a lot of people that I do not remember details but I am not recommending a book with no thought process.
- That’s why this blog began to contain my opinions and feelings about the book I read. I will take liberty to criticize or applaud any twist in the tale here.
- I hope more people read and read well. I have a dream – that I will find Chaucer easy to understand, and that one day, people will not mind spending on a book of poems as opposed to cheap novellas.
I work in Marketing by day and have recently completed an MA in Literature, which has been hard work!
This here is my other blog!
