How many are the days that you spend without reading? Leaving the office drab aside, do you find some time every day to read a book? Do you read your fiction interest every day? Can you borrow some minutes from your usually busy day and sit down with your favourite author’s work to relax your mind? Well, we know that’s tough today! To make things easy, The Book Blog has made a plan. We at The Book Blog read a lot to make sure that we review almost each of the new books as well as the classics to give you ‘a bit of everything’ so that you don’t waste your time choosing the books and spend your sweet little time in reading…

We review short stories, poetry, novels, and non-fiction (which has no limits). We read so much so that we easily come up with the wide reader interest that our readers might have. The Book Blog is a platform for the books by established authors as well as promising new authors. Today, you might find a review of Chetan Bhagat’s book on TBB and tomorrow you will see something about the book by a boy from some village in UP! We leave no stone unturned in bringing the best possible read to your table which often is busy finding something ‘good’ to read in the valuable leisure.

You can enjoy the TBB blog every day; we update it with the latest reviews as we read new books. TBB operates from a spacious personal library which has more than 2,000 titles and the number is increasing daily. The authors who want us to review their books can contact us for the same. We love reading news books and always welcome writers who wish to send across their titles to our team for the review. We hope the readers will enjoy The Book Blog!

Recently I just happened to read his short story...
