The debate over which is a more popular beverage, tea or coffee, never seems to end. Although the odds are squarely stacked in favour of tea, coffee-drinkers stubbornly refuse to admit to the fact and never miss an opportunity to ride their favourite hobby-horse. Even in South America, long regarded as the world’s coffee capital, tea is the scene-stealer as numero uno. Yes indeed; not coffee, not cocoa, not even beer – Only tea. Perhaps online book shopping could give us clues. In the meanwhile, there is unassailable evidence that tea is the reigning champion. For one thing, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) says the average daily consumption of tea globally stands at around six billions cups every day. The two maximum populated countries, China and India, are extreme tea lovers. And now the ultimate and most...

Why Should You Read Autobiographies

April 9, 2020 by admin
autobiographies books
Think autobiographical books, and you think of some great leaders of different fields from across the world. We Indians tend to buy books at any time, for birthdays or as festival gifts; internationally, books are more of Christmas gifts. Anyhow, why not! They make a good inspirational read for the holidays. However, I know many who are not much interested in autobiographies and biographies; their preference is fiction. While it is completely a personal choice, I believe life stories are different kind of stories which have no fiction but some hard-hitting truths. While there are many available books online too, I personally prefer to read true to life stories. Autobiographical and biographical accounts give indepth knowledge of how the person became what he or she is today, or what made them what they were better known for. Think Indira Gandhi,...

COVID-19 Coronavirus brings people closer

April 7, 2020 by admin
Social Distancing
Forced confinement to our homes on account of the Coronavirus has led people to resort to various innovative ways and means to either occupy themselves or interact across various digital platforms. Some among us have books, yet some are quick to buy online books to continue with their reading. While men are mostly talking about business-related matters, the women are going yakitty-yak-yak on their mobiles, talking their heads off nineteen to the dozen. In pre-Coronavirus days without any restrictions on mingling or mixing, the ladies got their adrenaline rush with their regular doses of juicy neighbourhood gossip. But the exchange over the cellphones is of a more mundane nature. Now the talk centres around the prices of fruits, vegetables, milk and dry provisions like rice, wheat flour, pulses, cooking oils and sugar or about who’s getting what from where and...

The Innocence My Cat Gifted Me

Now that the Coronavirus in India has permeated and affected all human activity that form a part of our daily routine, it is interesting to note that even animals are not like their usual selves anymore. With their sixth sense, it’s easy for these creatures to tell that all is not well. The ever-present stray dogs and cows, a prominent neighbourhood fixture, have almost disappeared. And then, what about house pets? I suppose dogs are the worst affected because they can’t have their daily walks on account of the curfew. Perhaps online book shopping could point me in the right direction and throw some light on how to deal with this situation. I wonder what these animals would have to say, if they could only talk. It is more than certain they’d blame us totally for the mess that the...

Stay Trendy & Buy Online Coffee-Table Books

March 16, 2020 by admin
Perhaps it would do well to bear in mind the kind of attire that would be most suitable for summer, especially if you’re living in the dusty and arid conditions of the Rajasthan desert. Clearly the best choice by any standards are light, crisp cool cottons. The fabric by its very nature is light and airy. It allows the skin to breathe. So whether it’s for female garments or male attire, there is no limit to what people can do with cottons. Even muslin is a time-tested fabric for the summer, but it is more suited for women’s attire. But while you’re out shopping for the latest styles in summer wear, it would be handy to check out existing trends in coffee-table books online. It’s always good to have such information under your hat because one never knows when it...

Nothing beats summer than shopping. And for some of us, it could be window shopping. Some others find pleasure in… online book shopping! No matter what you or I might say, there are lots of folks who will always root for summer despite the heat, dust, flies, water-shortages and power cut. But they have their reasons: the days are longer, so one can do a lot more things. Winter makes people lazy. Because of the cold, no one wants to get out of bed and do anything else, least of all have a wash or take a bath, which though is yet another good reason for reading! For the ladies it’s worse; household chores are such drudgery. Yes, indeed. The only thing that feels good is to laze in the sun and read books. And with advancing technology, it’s a...
