Book buffs around the country ought to be a happy lot right now. Amazon has launched its popular Kindle store in India. Now, readers can swap rupees for reads, as international bestsellers, classics and works by Indian and independent authors are a click and download away. Also, fledgling writers will now have access to Kindle Direct Publishing to showcase their work and find interested parties.
I visited Storyrevolution.in and found the love of books running in the site. For a reader, the reviews and a brief idea about the book and the age group matters before attempting to buy a book. And used books are always a better option for book aficionado and people who have scoured waste paper marts and second-hand book shops will understand this better. We want to appreciate this effort at a time when children are addicted to their phones and tablets and not going to libraries, and the initiative by Angela Jain and Shalini Sekhar trying to change this.
