What I Read In September


Isn’t time just rolling its merry wand by? It’s hard to believe that in two months we will see the end of yet another year. Where would 2019 take us? Would this world that seems so chaotic this year finally settle into a beautiful eternal colored sky of peace? If I could describe my reading […]

What I Read In August


I read a lot more in August and I am surprised I did. When people ask me, “How do you read so much? Where do you find the time?” I am always puzzled. How does one “find” time? Time doesn’t exist. We all have these many hours to fill every day. What we do with […]

What I Read In July


As expected, I didn’t read as many books in July. Well, I know that 10 might be a great number to many, and I am so grateful that I was able to read as many, but there were too many things that led me to be distracted in a good, generous, happy way, and I […]

What I Read In June


My reading usually ends up taking a dip about this time of the year. For some reason, June and July are never my best reading months. Is it the glorious Bangalore weather? Shouldn’t be, because all that nip in the air should just make me want to cuddle deeper into my quilt, warm myself with […]

What I Read In April


I had a break from all work for about five days in April. I was away in the Maldives where I spent a lot of time by the sea, soaking in some sun, and absorbing a lot of words. Even now, when I close my eyes, I can feel the colors of the sea in […]

What I Read In March


I read a lot in March! I also read a lot with my friend, the two of us setting aside a time together where we Skype but don’t talk – we just read together. From Bangalore to Dublin. It’s been wonderful. It’s been magical. And it’s making me read a lot more! Classics The Autobiography […]

The Vagaries Of The Universe


I had this sudden instinct last week to just visit some books. Yes, that’s what I call book shopping. I feel that these beloved books, words written by an author who lavished his/her love on them, would languish if no one is around to talk to them. I think of all the thousands of books […]
