Signing up for IQR challenge 2013

We are proud to announce that we are registering for the Indian Quills Reading (IQR) challenge 2013.

What is it all about? (Direct, without a word's change from the founder's blog)

The Indian literary scene is under bombardment and Indian Quills Reading Challenge is inspired from that beautiful word-a-lious attack. Indian books, Indian writers, Indian stories…..there are so many out there that each one of us end up missing a few, sometimes even the good ones and that is terrifying to this desi reader.


IQR Challenge is an attempt to bring the reviews of books by Indian authors scattered all over under one database at The Tales Pensieve (the founder's blog). Going forward with this site’s underlying partiality with Indian authors, it is to also serve as a collective effort to promote the literature and authors of Indian origin.

What we feel about the whole thing?
Be patriotic people. Were it not us, who else will read the books from our people? Though I read mostly non-desi books, I loved to Indian, too. They had more to relate in them. More to relate our own life's happenings. We wish the founder a good luck for such a wonderful start.

The number of books that we would be reviewing for this challenge would be 25. Perhaps, more books than that, but I don't commit for a larger number.
