Driven Dishi ,

Tremendous work

Yajat you truly are a rock star. Your voice is so mesmerizing that one just doesn’t want to stop listening to you. This is a great initiative .. a summary of book is precisely what a book lover is always looking out for and you’ve hit that spot and that too at such a tender age. Wishing you tons of success in this wonderful venture of yours!

noor-e-jiya ,

Amazing initiative!

Hey! I love the initiative and I am currently reading The King of Mulberry Street. Thanks to you! I want to read The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. I have heard a lot about it. Could it review it, if possible?
**Update
Thank you for The Last Lecture’s summary. I loved the book! I look forward to more podcasts from you.

agopaluni ,

Start listening!

This is great. It’s a place where you can learn about all sorts of great books. The speaker is super descriptive and really promotes the great books. I know that I have to start reading some of these books. Love what your doing!
