A few words for our readers and Books Charming -
Read as much as you can. Reading brings peace to the mind. Books Charming (Aakanksha Jain) is really a sweet person, my Indori friend (the city which will always remain close to my heart for various reasons). Aakanksha is really hardworking and the time which she invests in her blog is commendable. I was amazed to know that blogging is her only source of income. Keep going girl. Hope to meet you soon in Indore with lots of Poha and Jalebis.
