Then…Now…

Then :

I never knew what a library looked like, except for the small little one my school had.

Now :

A visited library couple of times and keeps getting books delivered to door step regularly.

Then :

I never knew about authors. All I read apart from the academic books were Tinkle, Amar Chitra Katha series, Chandamama etc

Now :

A reads books by different authors, Indian and foreign, and she knows some of the names too.

Then :

I didn’t read a novel until I entered my graduation college, and if I remember correctly, Seventh Secret by Irving Wallace was the first novel I read in my first year.

Now :

A finished couple of novels, by Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl and Jeronimo Stilton and more are on the way.

Then :

I didn’t enter a thing called Book Exhibition until I became an adult.

Now :

A’s school conducts these book exhibitions every year and what’s more, the kids get to walk around, choose their books, and buy them.

Then :

I didn’t know that there exists something called Book Review until I grew quite big. And writing a book review, is something I attempted, only after starting blogging, which started just a couple of years ago.

Now :

A got home a school library book last week, and over the weekend, she attempted a book review with my help, for the Book Review Competition at school.

Times have changed a lot over these years, with respect to books, and they are definitely for the better. I wish the change remains so and the love for books increases more…
