Bookish anime: Bungo Stray Dogs


Although I haven't watched it yet, I know that Bungo Stray Dogs has a bookish aspect to it - all of the main characters are named after famous Japanese authors, and each of them has a special power in some way inspired by their author. The only one based on an author I've read is Osamu Dazai (top row, all the way to the left). My little character booklet says his ability is "No Longer Human" (also the title of Dazai's best-known work). Cryptic.


The boxed set I bought includes a little envelope with something I haven't had in a while, actual paper bookmarks. Nifty.

Review Overdue Series– Whimsy Moon Bookmarks, Online Book Outlet Giveaways, Paperback Emporium, & Desi Writer Lounge’s Literary Open Mic Night




Whimsy Moon

Who doesn’t like a touch of whimsy in their lives? Click on the link and look at the designs on their page and you will end up ordering something or the other. The designs are quirky and just plain, whimsical. They delivered on time and the product arrived in perfect condition. I found the price a tad high but I abso-loved the bookmark. The quote on the bookmark is from the Malazan series. If you haven’t read any of it, then there’s something wrong with you!




Online Books Outlet Giveaway

I came across this post on the page and was the first one to share it. Five minutes later and the bookstore PM’d me, asking me for my address. I had the book within several days of that message. I had recently gifted my own copy to a friend and I won this one in the giveaway. How awesome is that! Here’s a look at the booty won:




Paperback Emporium




When I need a book delivered that I can’t find anywhere, these are the guys I go to. They are extremely responsive on Facebook and always deliver. If they don’t have the book, then they will have it imported for you, like the one pictured above. I found about them via Instagram when I saw these lovelies featured on their feed:




As you can see, I was already drooling and promptly ordered both books, impatiently waiting for them to arrive. Oh, they arrived!


As it stands now, I am slowly buying the remaining books from them in this series so as not to break the bank. Give PE a chance; they won’t disappoint!


Desi Writer’s Lounge Literary Open Mic Night


DWL is always active and always doing something to promote reading and writing in different areas of Pakistan! Since I’d love it if they had more events in my city (Karachi), when I saw the post for Open Mic, I knew I wasn’t going to miss it.


A simple registration process through email later and I had signed up as one of the people who would be sharing their work at the event. I was to pay Rs. 350 at the venue. Besides that, they had only one other rule: the work shared must be original. Mine was.

I read something that I had written for Wringo Ink. You can find it here.



The recital was well received because I was reading in a supportive environment. Whether it was poetry or prose and in English or Urdu, that was being shared, everybody was appreciative.


We were seated comfortably and munched on delicious bun-kebabs provided by Sattar Bakhsh while sipping Pepsi. In short, a good was had by all! DWL has promised to share videos and pictures of the event here, so be on the lookout.
