My Initial Experiences at Bookworm
October 28, 2017

For two years I passed by this unassuming red building named Bookworm. I never thought of entering, thinking that it was only a children’s library (my loss). My journey at Bookworm started when a friend, Krystle, who works with them told me about the work they did and asked whether I would be interested in […]

Of worlds beyond my own
October 19, 2017

“Come with me where dreams are born, and time is never planned…” – Peter Pan Fantasy as a genre has always been my favorite; fantasy books are the ones I come back to again and again, the ones I read and reread, the ones I analyze to the point of memorization and the ones I […]

A Non Reader Amongst Readers – HELP !
September 28, 2017

Before joining Bookworm, I always thought that food, clothing and shelter are the basic needs of people. But I realise I was quite wrong. Before my time here, I have been in the company of people who spoke about T.V and its contents, Face Book and the posts on FB and all sorts of entertainment […]

The First Five Weeks
September 12, 2017

I joined Bookworm on 31 July, a Monday. I was quite nervous – I had met some of the team earlier and they were IMPRESSIVE. The Monday Morning Meeting (3M?) was full of banter and bonhomie. As with all organisations, in-house acronyms were flying all over the place – RAT, BT, RA, HRA (not house […]

As I was going through the selection of “Award Winning Books” I saw this book and started reading it. I liked the book very much because it was about two Ducks looking for a place to settle down in a city. Ducks are adorable creatures and I liked them as characters in the story. The […]

The book was recommended to me by Anandita as she felt that it was a very nice book. The cover page of this book was what tempted me to finally start reading it. The theme of this book is “Gender”. I went online to find out more about the author, illustrator and the book itself. […]
