Short bio: 

Vybav is a 20-year-old college student, blogger, and content who lives in Tamilnadu, India. She’s focused on developing her skills and using them to help others. I am that kind of bookworm who read novels during exams and woke up late. I believe that one should improve at least a little bit every day.

THE INTERVIEW

When did you first start reading for pleasure?

I was introduced to storybooks by my parents at the age of 5. Ever since they have always been a part of my life. But it was at the age of 12 when I started to become a full-fledged bookworm and started finishing one book in two days.


What is the first book/novel you read?

The first-ever novel I read was a Tamil novel called Ponniyin Selvan. My very first English novel was Immortals of Meluha 










What genre do you read?

Mostly fiction, fantasy, and epic fantasy to be precise. I also occasionally read thrillers and fictions based on Indian Mythology


Do you judge a book by it’s cover?

To an extent. While the cover is not everything for a book, it definitely adds certain feels to a book. So yeah, I read online reviews, look at the cover, flip a few pages, and then buy the book.



What is your all-time favorite book/novel and why? Do you repeat reading it?

Harry Potter. This will remain my all-time favorite. Unlike many people I didn’t read it when I was a child, I read it when I was somewhere between 19 and 20. I was going through a hard stage of life and it was this book that boosted my mood and made my life magical. Yes, I repeat reading it. I read it like five times within a year, and I am planning to reread it sometime sooner.



Would you recommend your favorite book/novel to other bookworms?

Definitely. To all the bookworms out there, if you haven’t read Harry Potter yet, I’d definitely recommend it to you. You’ll have a magical journey through the books. The bonus is being part of the fandom. They are just amazing. 



Who is your favorite author?

George R.R. Martin. While J.K.Rowling wrote my most favorite book, I personally like the writing style of GRRM. If I start writing fiction books I aspire to write like him. 



What ambiance do you prefer for reading? Quite at home? Or somewhere green and serene?

I can literally read anywhere and at anytime. Even if there is a loudspeaker blaring near me, my mind will just block that sound eventually. But I would always love to read somewhere green and serene. 


How is the reading culture in your country?

As long as I have observed adults love to read short stories. People also read novels based on history and mythology 


Do you have any idea how to improve the reading culture in your country?

While the reading culture is pretty good over here, introducing exciting and fun-filled books to children and young adults may be a good idea to increase the reading habits.


Ok, that's all the questions I have for this bookworm interview. Thank you, Vybav for participating in this interview and sharing with me your knowledge of books, and the reading culture in India. I learned a lot about the reading culture and book industry in India from you. All the best in your blogging career and future.

  9. A agree that sometimes I do judge a book to certain extent as well. It goes to show how much attention the author/publisher is giving to its masterpiece. A good content without a proper cover is just lazy job in my humble opinion.

    1. Hehehe.....actually what you said is true. I used to work at Karangkraf and I learn that covers plays an important role to market a book. Plus, a cover is a summary to what is inside the book. That's why we do judge a book by its cover.
