About the logophile


Hi! I am Sheetal and this is my blog. I love reading and I love unabashedly dreaming in my world of words. Words that make up books or poems or articles. I don’t have any particular affinity towards any sort of genre of books, but I find myself veering towards the young adult fiction a lot. Since I am almost convinced that I still feel like a 16 year old girl instead of the the 30-something woman that I really am, I don’t find it a surprise.

I have loved to read for as long as I can remember. I guess reading is hereditary in my case since my parents and both of my brothers are avid readers too. I remember when I was around 8, my eldest brother opened up a membership with the local ‘Sanjay Library’ in Pimpri, a small town near Pune, India. Both of my brothers and I shared a single membership of the library since in those days one membership is what our parents could afford. The library used to allow 2 books per day. Now my brothers’ motto was to read up one book in a day so that they can read as many books as possible. As I was the youngest any book used to come to me late in the day and also as I was the slowest in reading even if they were picture books mostly I couldn’t finish them in time. And that used to leave me irritated and with a feeling of greatest urge to complete the books. This is where I think I picked up the ability to read swiftly.

And that urge to read new and exciting books has never stopped. Be it the classics like Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice or young adult fiction like Nancy Drew, books are what I have grown up on. They are my place of peace, comfort, my sanctum. So much so that to the annoyance of one of my best friends, I had read a Hardy Boys book during a school day under my desk while completely and blissfully ignoring her sitting next to me 😛

So….. I love books 😉 and this blog is just a way to express it.

Also, I have been itching to write for a while now. Just recently I gathered my courage and started writing for topics in the daily prompt in the section – “Wordly rants”  and poems in the section – “Couplets Verses and Stanzas” of my blog, which is just me voicing aloud my inner thoughts, opinions and ideas on my blog. So, this is just a warning of sorts that you might have to endure some crappy, utterly disgusting, or downright ugly posts from me 😉

I conclude with an Emily Dickinson verse

“There is no Frigate like a Book
To take us Lands away
Nor any Coursers like a Page
Of prancing Poetry…”


Note: The poems added in the section "COUPLETS, VERSES & STANZAS", and the posts added in the entire blog are written and composed by me.  I want to inform the readers that  the opinions, ideas and views in these posts are entirely mine and are not expressed in anyway to hurt or degrade anyone.

    Hey there! I love the way you described about yourself. And that attitude of being a 16 year old girl from inside is quite impressive. My dad used to say that all the time and thats the reason why he is always happy. Be happy and share Happiness!
