Hello people, I come bearing good news. I at last got my system got working again and had to completely reformat the hard drive. So I will have to catch up with all your posts and comments and I will get to that right away.
I have been hinting during the past few (or more) weeks about me attending the Dubai literature festival and I finally attended it. It was fantastic to say the least. I saw several of those awesome writers and authors.
I saw likes of Joe Hill, Anthony Horowitz, Sashi Tharoor et al and I also renewed my interest in poetry. Maybe I will write a post on them in a few days. Well, I found my new favorite spoken word artist Afra Atik and she is something.
But most of all I found my tribe of people. YES Bookworms! I loved meeting and chatting away about books and writing to many of them. One of them even found me a library that is affordable and considerably closer to my house. Yay to that!
Another thing that I loved about the festival was the number of children and teens who attended and flocked to see their favorite authors. I was kinda feeling emotional and tad overwhelmed by all their love for books. It reminded me of myself when I was kid who couldn’t wait to go home after schools just to open my books.
And all these have got the bookworm in me pumped up and I finished two books just the last week. And I promise to churn out more of those blog posts and comments hereon. And I am back on track (hopefully).
So quick recap:
I am so so far behind on my comment365 challenge – I have visited about 28 blogs and we are on 76th day today. (*ducks shamefully)
I finished two books in the last two weeks. And that makes a total of 8 books on my A – Z challenge for 2018. Check it out here

- Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jasw
And for this month’s Flyaway Friday I am not travelling far from my place but you are for sure. Yes we are gonna talk about United Arab Emirates, yay the place where I am currently put up. And I got a book worm who is an Emirati to post more about the country. So keep up guys.
