Discover Paris (Lonely Planet Travel Guide)
Lonely Planet Discover Paris (Travel Guide) - Christopher Pitts,Catherine Le Nevez,Nicola Williams,Lonely Planet

Good, compact, and it includes all the relevant information about the main sights.

It also has a removable fold-out map and metro map, which is very handy.


The restaurant, shopping, and bar listings mean that the book dates very quickly. 

I wish more time had been spent on information about sights instead of those listings.


However, each section also includes proposed walks which are easy to follow and average a distance of between 3 and 4 km, which is manageable in Paris at a leisurely pace.

The Kunwar Viyogi Memorial Trust situated in Jammu, hometown of Dogra community, that works for the preservance and promotion of Dogri culture was established in the memory of Group Captain Randhir Singh, popularly known as `Kunwar Viyogi’ in literary circles.  For the dogri culture to survive, the language must be preserved first. The trust believes that language can be saved only if the youth accepts it, the younger generation can easily connect to today’s technological inventions  therefore the trust came up with a way to grab the attention of the youth, they have launched an application first of it’s kind, a dogri dictionary app by the name of Discover Dogri which also promotes dogri music



Discover Dogri App


Technological inventions are must for advancement of any initiative in today’s world.

Dogri Music


Dogri music is still famous among the Dogra people, it is still played at cultural gatherings in the Dogra community, but soon it will disappear, the youth is unaware of the dogri rhythms,  people have forgotten the importance of inculcating the interest  of traditional and regional songs among their children, the importance of dogri music is getting diminished with time.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - To Discover a Divine (Rise of the Stria #1) by Tessa McFionn
To Discover a Divine (Rise of the Stria #1) - Tessa McFionn

To Discover a Divine is the first book in the Rise of the Stria series, and we start this series with a bang. Evainne has ended up on a prison barge in the middle of outer space when all she did was walk out of her front door. She is rescued by an 'alien' who helps her as much as he can. Evainne is different to the females Khalym knows, as she is blunt to the point of being tactless. However, the sparks are there between the two of them. Now if they can only figure out just what Evainne was wanted for, and how they keep being found, it should all be good.


This is a fast-paced science fiction romance, with plenty of action and adventure too. Evainne handles all the information remarkably well, but it is written in a way that explains that, rather than just trying to sweep it under the carpet. Khalym is a hero who thinks he is broken as he has been rejected for most of his life. Together, I can see these two having an amazing time, and it has definitely given me a taste for more in this series.


With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this story kept me engrossed from beginning to end. It does have a HFN ending, with a sort of cliffhanger, but all that has done is leave me wanting MORE right NOW! Absolutely recommended.

Britt-Marie Was Here
Britt-Marie Was Here: A Novel - Fredrik Backman
ISBN: 9781501142536
Publisher: Atria 
Publication Date: 5/3/2016 
Format: Other
My Rating:  4.5 Stars 


From the extraordinary author and Swedish storyteller, Fredrik Backman, with his award-winning debut, A Man Called Ove, delivers another zany character, BRITT-MARIE WAS HERE — A heartwarming, witty celebration of second chances, unlikely friendships, and the power of one person to make the world a better place. 

Britt-Marie is age 63. Amusingly unconventional and idiosyncratic. Some may say eccentric. She does not like a mess. Her husband Kent said she was aggressive-passive. Known as nag-bag. All she ever wanted was a balcony. She wanted a husband who did not walk on the parquet floors with his golf shoes. If he could only put his shirt in the laundry basket and would say occasionally he liked the food.

She likes an organized cutlery drawer. Clean windows. Newly mopped floors. Her favorite “go to” must have cleaning tool of choice “bicarbonate of soda.” It wipes always all the flaws. Clean and new. Kent said she was “socially incompetent.” They were past their sell by date. She had enough. There were limits. She was leaving.


Britt-Marie likes things clean. An obsession. A need for order. Would be nice to be appreciated. Be noticed. She was critical, hard to please, judgmental, excessively particular about details. Easily disgusted. She is flawed, zany, funny, and possesses a great heart. Her compulsive tendencies are explained by her tragic past and history of being neglected and diminished by those around her.

Leaving her husband, she starts a new. She finds herself in Borg, a tiny, economically depressed “community built along a road.” Most of the town has been shut down, most of the residents have left, and the ragtag bunch remaining includes orphaned children, a criminal, a former star of the local football team (now blind), and the proprietor of the only business in town—who's in a wheelchair, and most likely an alcoholic. Plus her relationship with a rat (hilarious).

As a caretaker, her new job is a perfect fit!. She cleans and cleans. The defunct recreational Center in the fictional European town of Borg. With an array of interesting off-beat characters including two young children—Vega and Omar.

But behind the passive-aggressive, socially awkward misfit, is a woman who has more imagination, bigger dreams, and a warmer heart than anyone around her realizes. Love can be found in the most unexpected of places. A place of belonging.

Equally witty and poignant; Hilarious, insightful and moving, an inspiring story about truth, second chances, and rediscovery. Best of all, another important life lesson.


On a personal note, Britt-Marie is so much like my dad. At age 85, he is still a cleaning machine. Never get in the way of his cleaning. Heaven forbid you should come to the door after the floors have been freshly vacuumed. You will not be allowed to enter. Never interfere with his schedule.

I listened to the audiobook and Joan Walker's performance was amazing! A perfect entertaining Britt-Marie.

Highly recommend Backman’s latest novella, And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer The small book with a Big powerful important message and loads of heart! Top Novella of 2016.

Fredrik Backman: Staying Grounded

Q&A with Fredrik Backman, courtesy of Shelf Awareness

You used to drive a forklift. How did that evolve into writing books that are loved around the world?


I don't know. It's still a mystery to everyone who knows me. I always viewed writing as a hobby, not a career choice, and, to be honest, I still do. My dad keeps telling my wife she needs to "treat the money as if Fredrik won the lottery, because this probably won't last!" I think he's got a point. I think I'll eventually go back to having a real job, and I don't really think I'll be any less happy than I am now.
