Some nights, sleep evades me. I usually turn to my comfort reads on such days but for some reason, I chose to borrow this book from Kindle Unlimited to read. Perhaps the editor’s name helped the choice.Continue reading “Book Review: Love Stories, edited by Ruskin Bond”
Indian mythology is filled with many characters… Gods, Goddesses, Demigods and Demons etc. It’s wonderful to read about them. It’s one of the more popular genres when it comes to the world of Indian writing in English. Few authors do that genre justice, and Anuja is one of them. When this book came my way, I didn’t hesitate to take it up.
I mentioned in one of my earlier posts about some eBooks being there now which you can read in ten or fifteen minutes at most. It was nice to see a couple of books from Ruskin Bond in that list too. I have always admired the writing of Ruskin Bond. It’s simple writing that anyone can follow and enjoy reading.
There’s a book for everyone, or so it is said. Nowadays, there are books even for those who only have ten minutes of free time in a day. I was surprised to see that. But I was happy to see this book as one of those books.
The love for reading has been there since childhood. From fairy tales to crime fiction, my school days got me into reading more often than not. Comics were one genre I consumed happily back then. I remember reading the witty tales of Akbar & Birbal as a series of comics. It was a delightful travel back in time as I re-read some of the tales that I loved back then in this book by Monisha Mukundan.
