Reading Challenge: Dread and Read

Earlier this year, I decided to join the Dread and Read challenge @ Hotchpot Cafe which (as the name suggests) challenges us to read the books that are there on our TBR piles but that we dread reading. To make the task easier, our gracious hostess, Jane,  has offered us sweeteners.

What with one thing or the other, however, I quite forgot to write a sign-up post for it. But better late than never and so here I am committing myself to read four books that have been languishing on my shelves. All of them are auto/biographies of Indian freedom fighters.

1. Bandi Jeevan by Sachindranath Sanyal.
2. Aap Beeti by Bhai Parmanand
3. Inquilabi Yatra by Manorma Dewan
4. Lala Lajpat Rai by Feroz Chand

Want to join too? You can sign-up here before the 1st of December.


  1. Good luck with the TBR!

  2. Sounds like a good idea for a challenge, Neeru. I look forward to your update posts.

  3. Thanks Sergio and Margot. Hopefully I will be able to read in a few months the books that I haven't been able to read for (in case of two books) decades:)

  4. Welcome, Neer! I hope this challenge will make it a little easier for you to get to those books, and you're well in time before the sign-ups close on Dec. 1st.

    Good luck and keep me posted how you're doing.

    1. Thanks Jane. Will soon be posting a review of the first one read.
