Dear <<First Name>>,


For The Love Of Good Books: That is what this newsletter is called. You ask, what's in a name? And, before we begin this literary journey, I want to share what really is in this name, and why it is so special to me.

You may, or may not, have read my blog post on Eloor, the favourite childhood library that had been a part of my life since I was five, and which shut down on that fateful day of New Year 2018. 

"I remember jotting down random title names from various sources, and pestering the staff to find those odd titles for me. I remember how those Uncles who work there, smiled knowingly every time I walked into the library. I remember how they bought copies of the books that the library didn’t have, just because I wanted to read those titles. I remember when my brother picked up the same books that I had earlier read, and the member number 6066 was still scrawled in the vertical, rectangular white piece of due date paper, since when I had issued it some years back."

And, Eloor was a library that did justice to its tagline: for love of good books. In fact, it always stood as a living example on how to truly love books. I wrote a post that very same day it shut down in an urge to hold on to the memories of this favourite place in Chennai that made my childhood wonderful. 

And today, we start this  journey with that same passion that Eloor was run on for so many years. And, I hope that my relationship with you through this newsletter is as sweet, long-standing, and memorable as my tryst with this wonder library that played a huge role in making me the reader I am today. 

So, there is something in the name after all, and I hope this email will bring a smile to your face just  the way it brings to mine!

What to look forward to? I just finished reading A Woman of No Importance, a play by by Oscar Wilde, and I can't wait to talk about it!
As always, you are welcome to share your thoughts, experiences, perspectives, anecdotes, criticisms, and anything at all that you would regarding today's literary discussion or my piece on it!
