In Evil Hour ā€“ The beginning of the end

I am insanely behind on my reading schedule this year. Iā€™m taking part in @blogchatter’s #TBRChallenge and I set myself up with a comfortable 25-book target. However, currently, I don’t think I will be able to make it and I don’t want to psych myself into reading faster or reading just for the heck of it.

This is precisely why when I took a little over two weeks to complete this rather short novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, I was a bit upset with myself. I picked this up because I thought it would be the perfect little nugget between two possible substantial reads.

Ah. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

DRIVING – An extreme sport in India

Almost five years ago, I published my last post for my first A to Z Challenge. I was grateful for having completed the challenge successfully, but also for the post I put up. Here’s the link, go read it. Today, I must say, I have even more gratitude in my heart as I sit to pen down my deeper experiences on the topic. Driving. Here are a few of my takeaways.

COLOURS of Spring

Winter is definitely my favourite season ever. It starts with a nip in the air early morning and after sundown, when days are shorter, people retire earlier for the day. Everyone wants to cozy up with a blanket, I do it with a book and a cup of coffee. However, when Spring is in the air, Delhi NCR has another avatar altogether. I hate Summer, but Spring, gosh, she’s a beauty. Am not much of an outdoorsy person, but heck, even I enjoy going for a walk in the park. In fact, this year I celebrated my birthday with a picnic, but more on that later this month. Till then, I leave you with some lovely, bright and cheery pictures of Spring.

A2Z Challenge – Take Four

I guess I am a bit of a masochist seeing how I very randomly registered myself for Blogchatter’s #BlogchatterA2Z campaign. In fact, Blogchatter made it so simple to register this time. While I was expecting to fill out a form, hem and haw over it for half a day, all it took me this was a couple of clicks, and BAM! I was registered. Ha! I may be second-guessing my actions at the moment and low-key hyperventilating, but needless to say I am very excited about this rather strenuous campaign next month. It’ll be my fourth time and I am itching to get started on this.

Read, blog, share, repeat

I can’t believe it’s the last day of October. Oh, how time flies! This month has been such a crazy one with BlogChatter and their #MyFriendAlexa campaign. It was a challenge to put out eight posts in a month. I usually go for one a week, because sometimes I take two to three days to push out a post and writing two in a week pushes me a bit too much, especially since I have a full-time job and also need to manage a household. I am not the person who will be super productive all day, everyday. Nope. That’s just not me. I know, at times I blog in fits and starts, but I need to keep an easy pace. Hat’s off to the full-fledged bloggers out there. They’re amazing.
