Silent Reading Meet#1 : how it happened

It started with a post that the awesome traveler Doulos shared on fb about silent reading parties / meeting in US ! This totally caught my interest and i asked him to arrange one in Delhi too. A month later we again talked about it and this time he assigned the job to me.
So, a fb event was created. Date and venue was picked over calls and chats. And we were set.
Last Saturday, 5pm I reached the venue to find 4 people waiting for me. 3 more joined in next half hour while we discussed the books we had got to read. Amidst the lovely ruins of hauz khas, sitting on the lush green grass, we turned to our books and silently read for an hour. It was the longest stretch of reading i had in a long long time. And it was so amazing.

This one experience was enough for me to want to do this again. And i will. Come august, i will create another event for second meet of silent readers. If you happen to be in delhi that weekend, do join me.
 
I also made some bookmarks for the fellow readers ~Β IMG_20140719_112714
