Thank you for visiting Pleasant Reads – The Online World Of Books.
Inspiration Behind Pleasant Reads:
Books are actually our best friends. They never talk back at us. They are not selfish at all, infact every book teaches us something.
There is nothing called as a bad book. Books maybe be badly written, but that is all. Therefore, books should get all the respect they deserve.
However, with the advent of Social Media and Smart Phones, instant gratification has become the de-facto norm. So, maybe as a reaction against that, I decided to do something about it. I am now on a mission to spread awareness- awareness about books and how wonderful they are. Pleasant Reads is a small initiative in this direction.
What is Pleasant Reads all about?
At Pleasant Reads, it will be my constant endeavour to provide you, the reader, with honest and sincere book reviews. It has something for every category of book lover- romance, fiction, thriller , fantasy and even comic books! The reader can review a particular book before reading and the buy a book – on this site itself!

But there is more..
There are many authors whose masterpieces do not see the light of the day. I extend my small helping hand to such authors. So, if you are an aspiring author and want to spread awareness about your book in general – just e-mail me a soft copy of your book and me/my team will gladly arange a review for you- for Free. Yes, for free. Every Author worth his salt will agree what an objective, unbiased book review means to them?
Oh, we also have dedicated groups on social media and will gladly spread a word about your book.
If you are not into book reviews – go through our Pleasant Reads Bytes Section and Pleasant Reads Recommendations.
I am sure you will find something always interesting there.
Pleasantreads review process for New Authors
- Submit your book in a .pdf or a .mobi version
- I will review the book along with a small team – which I have gradually aseembled over time.
- If the review is positive – your will receive a mail from me that the review will go on the website
- If the review is negative – you will get suggestions for improvement from me but the review itself will not go on the website – since I do not believe in negativity at all [ Writing is pro-active, reviewing is reactive, after all !]
- If you would like to do an interview – mail me a small bio about yourself, your body of work and social media handles, we will get back to you.
- Charges : @ prices starting from 150 INR for book reviews and interviews and INR 2500 for proof-reading for a manuscript, it can’t get any better! Please fill up your form to provide your details, we will get back to you!

I am a Telecom/ IT Professional with wide ranging exposure across these two domains. I now work as a Business Consultant and help organizations solve their problems. I am also an avid book lover, an aspring photograher and an author. Maybe that day will dawn soon when I too, have a book against my name.
