My name is Mallika, and I’m from India.
I love to read and have done so ever since I can remember. From Topsy and Tim, and Enid Blyton, to Francis Hodgson Burnett, condensed Classics for children, to Agatha Christie, Jeffrey Archer, and John Grisham, Wodehouse and Lemony Snickett and Richmal Crompton to which were added Henry Cecil, Barbara Pym, Miss Read, Elizabeth Gaskell, Dickens, and Austen, and many many others including ‘new’ discoveries once I joined Shelfari back in 2007, and books that I discovered through friends there. I enjoy a variety of genres; some of my favourites include detective fiction, history and historical fiction, children’s books, popular science and maths, fantasy, classics, and humour.
Besides reading of course, I also like to write about what I read and that is what you will find on this blog. Posts about books, authors, the occasional poem or two (posts about poems, not poems that I write)–essentially anything to do with books and reading.
Besides books, I love animals, nature, gardens, and food. I used to have a dog but now have five cats, two of which are ‘inside’ cats with some living in and around our garden, and one simply ‘visiting’ (and a few visiting dogs 🙂 ).
