Hi there! I’m Shinjini, and I’m a bookworm.

My love affair with books started at a rather tender age. Since then, I haven’t been able to step into a bookstore without walking out with at least one book!

My friends always want to know what I’m reading and constantly ask me for recommendations. When one of them suggested I host a reading challenge, I jumped at the idea. I like nothing better than fostering the reading habit, encouraging people to read widely, and eschewing bookish snobbery. {Though I do draw the line at Indian author Chetan Bhagat and his ilk. Sorry, not sorry!}

That’s where the Book Bingo reading challenge was born.

And this newsletter is a spin-off from that challenge.

So just what is The Reader’s Nook?

It’s a simple, monthly bookish newsletter, where I send book recommendations based on the year’s Book Bingo prompts, and tell you about the books I read during the month and the ones that are on my wish list. You should probably know that I read almost anything and everything: fiction, non-fiction, the eagerly anticipated and the lesser known, the new, the old, and the oversaturated.

I’ll also include a round-up of things I’m watching and loving, a poem that I particularly loved, and, perhaps, some bookish quotes.

From time to time, I will also surprise you with a bookish deep dive on a book that captured my attention. Think quotes, curated author interviews, articles, and reviews from around the internet.
