Hi... Welcome to My WeBSiTe...














Reading is a habit which helps a lot in life. This practice of reading has taken a back seat with the development of televisions and the internet. Children in the present times are all the time hooked to T.V.sets and the computers. Parents should make an effort of introducing their children to the world of books.

This should be started from a very young age. In fact children are able to understand even if they are not able to speak. You should start showing them picture books on animals, flowers and fruits. These are the things they can easily identify and they will be happy to browse through these books.

Some steps to make a child read
Buy some picture books, buy some painting books, make a scrap book by pasting pictures, make a habit of showing the picture books or reading a story at bed time.Children like to mimic. If the parents have a regular habit of reading child is sure to follow.

When the child grows up you should expose her to all types of books. Joining a library would be good idea. A regular visit to a book store would give an ample choice. Let the child browse through a wide variety of books on various subject. Do not force your choices on her .Let her choose according to her own liking. You can describe a book you want her to read if she shows some interest you can buy her the book. Spend time with your child to make her understand the story. Answer her questions patiently. Children are very curious and want to satisfy their curiosity. Reading if cultivated as a hobby can make you a very well read person and help you in all spheres of life.

What to Read

Learning to read, as you know is a continuous,never ending process. If you do very little additional reading, or if you read only material that offers no challenge to your comprehension, your reading will be of very little use.

Too many of us, once we reach a certain age, or once our formal schooling is completed, become so restricted in our choice of reading that we shy away from any new type of reading experience. We are reluctant to try anything beyond the level of a detective story or light novel, as if no other kind of book ever published could possibly interest us. Or we read only books in their professional or business field. Or only inspirational books. Or only our favourite newspaper every morning. Or only one magazine for which we have developed a liking.

And the trouble starts here. You should neither read only for entertainment nor only for information but you should also read for intellectual growth, for mental stimulation, for enriching your background of knowledge,. for increased wisdom, and for broader outlook and a mature understanding.

What kind of books should you read to continue your intellectual growth, to gain " a background for opinion and touchstone for judgment"?

The answer is simple one: Read books in fields you have little or no acquaintance with, books that will open for you new horizons of learning, books that will help you explore new areas of knowledge and experience, books that will make the world and people more understandable to you, books you can really sink your teeth into.

The Pact by Jody Picoult

This disturbing novel covered teenage depression, suicide, and pregnancy. As always Picoult’s novels are thought provoking and this one was no exception!


This book was great…as a movie it would be a cross between Jurassic Park and Dark Man. I’ve already purchased but not started the second in this series: Reliquary . The end of the first book left it open for continuation and I’m anxious to see if the plot is continued in the next book.


The plot of this novel centers around a legendary chess set once owned by King Charlemagne and flips between the 1790s and the 1970s. Although I am not a chess player, I found this a thoroughly engrossing read as the storylines of each time period unfolded.
