We bring to you this year end delight. The following are the books that Bookhad read. All hyperlinks will take you to their respective reviews on this blog. We’ll keep updating these hyperlinks as and when we review the books. We are growing. That’s like saying that the Himalayas are gigantic or that Orwell was a B.O.S.S! As you might have noticed we accelerated the quantum of reviewed books as compared to last year. Hence, even though there might not have been much of an increase in the number of books we’ve read, it is clear that we’ve used the time to review it.

Which, after all, is what we do best 😀

We would like to thank our regulars from the bottom of our heart for being the solid support that any enterprise needs. We might say that we do it for our pleasure but we can’t deny the fact that it is you keeps us going. There are a lot many people to thank for keeping the fire alive. Our group members, all of them, have been the beacon of awesomeness and brilliance, rolled together into one smoldering mixture of awe inspiring radiance. The magnificence showcased by a proud mother when her fledgling takes the first step into the wild? That’s what we feel right now! We wouldn’t have survived the first fall without y’all. As I write this I notice that we’ve reached 21,000 hits. On an average it’s like around 200 hits per post!

Imagine that! If we were asked if we saw this coming a year back, I’ll be honest, I wouldn’t’ve said a yes. We hoped, no doubt about that, but we weren’t certain.

The coming year will be better; in terms of reading and writing. Expect a few more fresh bursts of spontaneous fun and frolicking. Expect to be a part of something that you will look back in pride!
