Readers and writers, we read you

Most say writing is hard. Some say, reading is even harder. Here are some pretty little things that may make both more pleasurable and a little easier for you. Explore.

Most will agree that reading is good for you. Many might add that writing is good for you too. More often than not, people will ruefully say that they aren’t able to find the time to read as much as they’d like to. And that writing is not their cup of tea.


Fact of the matter is, everyone can read and write. All they need is a little help, a little encouragement to do so. Which is where we come in. Which is what this blog is devoted to. And so, here are some pretty little things that may make reading and writing a little more pleasurable and a little easier for you. Welcome. 



When you have something inviting to write in, like this handcrafted notebook by Vidhika Agarwal, perhaps you will be enticed to make a note of things that mean something to you, that catch your eye, that interest you.

Even when you are writing for others, writers will tell you that writing is a deeply personal activity. Also personal, as far as writers are concerned, is the writing instruments they use to craft their words. Speaking of which, so is this personalised writing aid by The Bling Store.
