What Happened To “The Girl Who Reads”

  • Manish Purohit

    Brilliant write up, me too feeling the same dilemma though (perhaps) I haven’t been such a voracious reader as you. All the very best for this year’s resolution, which (I’m sure) you would be able to complete. The list is simply amazing, especially the first one in the series is incredible. Stay blessed and keep your good work on !!!

    • Thank you so much Manish! I find a lot of people who are finding it difficult to maintain this habit and feel disappointed in themselves when they are not able to read regularly. Hence, this post. I just wanted to tell them that it is okay to read less, or develop a new taste in reading. The fact that they are reading this post is a proof that they still read! And so, all they need to do is accept this ‘evolved’ self of theirs.
      I’m glad it resonated well with you.
      Thanks for you support! 🙂

    This is the first post I find on your blog Mansi and was thrilled to read you too are an obsessive compulsive reader like me. This is my third year with the HT Brunch Book Challenge, though I am lagging far behind with my reading this year. I loved reading your list of books- such an interesting variety in terms of genres.
    I’d love to exchange some book notes with you :). Until then, I am adding some books from your collection to my TBR.
